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 13 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.
Tears For Fears will join Hall & Oates — now more formally known as Daryl Hall & John Oates — for a 29-date North American co-headlining tour that will keep the two duos on the road playing arenas, plus a few concerts outdoors, from early May until late July. Tickets for most shows go on sale March 10.
