Tears For Fears

As we reported last month, Tears For Fears have reconvened in the studio this summer to record a follow-up to 2004 reunion album Everybody Loves a Happy Ending, and while that’s expected to keep Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith busy for the next few months, they did treat fans today to some new music: a surprise cover of Arcade Fire’s “Ready to Start.”

The band tweeted a link to its Souncloud page featuring the cover of the Suburbs track, writing:

“Having appreciated artists like Kanye West, Katy Perry, Kimbra, Nas, Gary Jules/Michael Andrews, Adam Lambert & Dizzee Rascal covering & sampling our songs over the past years, we agreed that some reciprocal cross-generational love was in order. We decided to give Arcade Fire a twist of TFF. Enjoy.”

In addition to working on a new album, Tears For Fears also is prepping a box set to mark the 30th anniversary of debut album The Hurting.

Below, check out TFF’s “Ready to Start.”
