Listen: Tears For Fears, ‘I Love You But I’m Lost’ — first new song in 11 years

It’s not the new album Tears For Fears long have been working on, but the duo of Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith today debuted their first original song in 11 years, a track called “I Love You But I’m Lost” that will be one of two new songs on the group’s upcoming greatest-hits disc.

The 16-song best-of set Rule the World is due out Nov. 10 (now available for pre-order), and includes much of what appeared on 1992’s Tears Roll Down (Greatest Hits 82-92) collection, plus music from the two Smith-less Tears For Fears albums (1993’s Elemental and 1995’s Raoul and the Kings of Spain), plus the duo’s 2004 reunion Everybody Loves a Happy Ending.

The two new songs are the upbeat “I Love You But I’m Lost” and “Stay,” a “subtle, acoustic” track.

Back in 2013, Orzabal and Smith were in the studio working on a new TFF album and releasing covers of contemporary songs by Arcade Fire, Hot Chip and Animal Collective. They even declared, “We’d like to officially announce that we are writing and recording new original material to be released in 2014!”

That record has not yet seen the light of day, and the two new songs on the new best-of are the first new Tears For Fears songs since the bonus studio track “Floating Down the River” appeared on the band’s 2006 live album Secret World.

Below, listen to the new song and see the tracklist for the new greatest hits disc.

* New songs





  1. Human Cobras

    sounds really good

  2. Irving Weisenthal

    The boys from Bath have done it again! Very contemporary sounding and very catchy. I’ve listened to it over 10 times already. Love this and can’t wait for more!

  3. Great track indeed but their last album was a masterpiece and nothing Roland has ever done has been anything but awesome so no surprise here. Really looking forward to the new release.

  4. Doesnt sound like them at all, its actually a really bad song. They had a few good years, but those are very far behind them now.

  5. Sounds good, and that photo serves as a reminder that I am NOT the only one who is looking older, LOL!

  6. Alison Moyet is opening for them on their uk tour
