The Head on the Door is the sixth studio album by British band The Cure, released in 1985. The album is the first to feature drummer Boris Williams, it also features the return of Simon Gallup and is Porl Thompson’s first album as an official member.

This is also the first Cure album with drummer Boris Williams, who had previously worked with the Thompson Twins. Special guest Ron Howe from Fools Dance plays a saxophone solo on the track “A Night Like This”. On the 2007/08 4Tour The Cure played “In Between Days”, “Kyoto Song”, “The Blood”, “Push”, “The Baby Screams”, “Close to Me” and “A Night Like This” at various concerts.
