Tears For Fears Cover Arcade Fire
The band posted this exposition on their Soundcloud (via Slicing Up Eyeballs): "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"
It's a skittery, almost breakbeat version of Arcade Fire's arena-indie song, but Roland Orzabal nails the vocals of course and TFF make it their very own.
Perhaps releasing this as a taste of what's to come, Tears For Fears are currently in the studio recording their follow-up to 2004′s Everybody Loves a Happy Ending, and prepping a box set reissue of their 1983 album The Hurting. Listen to the track here.
