Tears For Fears – “Ready To Start” (Arcade Fire Cover)

Tears For Fears’ 2004 album Everybody Loves A Happy Ending found Curt Smith rejoining Roland Orzabal after an acrimonious decade apart. Since then, a series of reunion shows, reissues, and covers/samples by pop stars like Katy Perry and Kanye West have led to renewed interest in the influential new wave group. Now Smith and Orzabal have taken a break from recording a new LP to share an unlikely synth pop cover of Arcade Fire’s “Ready To Start.” Check it out below.

Arcade Fire have a new album out soon, too. It might be called Reflektor.
