Following a sold-out summer arena tour highlighted by their triumphant UK return in front of 65,000-plus fans as special guests of The Killers during British Summer Time Festival at Hyde Park, Tears For Fears – Roland Orzabal [vocals, guitar, keyboards] and Curt Smith [vocals, bass, keyboards] – close out 2017 with the release of their first career-spanning greatest hits album, Rule The World: The Greatest Hits. The collection arrives everywhere November 10th on UMe.
Not only does Rule The World: The Greatest Hits feature classics such as “Everybody Wants To Rule The World,” “Shout,” “Mad World,” “Head Over Heels,” “Woman In Chains,” and more, but it also boasts the first original music from the duo since 2004. This year, they recorded two new tracks — “I Love You But I’m Lost” and “Stay” — for inclusion on the collection. The single “I Love You But I’m Lost” bristles with the enigmatic energy of classic Tears For Fears, while the subtle acoustic “Stay” ranks among their most emotional fare. Both fit comfortably alongside the anthems that have defined three generations.
It’s just the beginning though. The new music hints at very big plans for Tears For Fears in 2018 and beyond!
