Goth superstars Billy Corgan and Robert Smith have teamed up to record a quirky cover of THE Bee Gees' tune TO LOVE SOMEBODY.

Former SMASHING PUMPKINS star Corgan invited Smith to join him in the studio while he was recording new solo album THE FUTURE EMBRACE, and he was amazed when his hero agreed.

Corgan says, "The Cure is one of my favourite bands of all time and Robert is a good friend of mine, so it's a dream come true."

Musical lore suggests The Bee Gees originally wrote the song for soul star Otis Redding a week before he died.
