A couple of months ago Tears For Fears shared a surprise cover of Arcade Fire’s “Ready To Start.”. It was recorded when Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith returned to the studio earlier this year to record the follow-up to their 2004 reunion LP Everybody Loves A Happy Ending. “The idea was before we actually had any material, before we got together, that we might try and do a couple of cover versions to sort of kick-start the recording process again,” Orzabal explained to Rolling Stone. The second cover released from those sessions is the duo’s take on Hot Chip’s “Boy From School.” Listen below.
Tears For Fears’ 30th anniversary box set of The Hurting is out now via Universal. A new album is expected next year.
