Tears For Fears Still Rule The World With Their Greatest Hits Album Out November 10
16-TRACKS INCLUDING TWO NEW SONGS "I LOVE YOU BUT I'M LOST" & "STAY"
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 collection arrives everywhere November 10, 2017 on UMe. It's available for pre-order at the band's official site now. Check out the full tracklisting below.
Not only does Rule The World 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.
For a glimpse of what to expect, listen to "I Love You But I'm Lost" HERE.
It's just the beginning though. The new music hints at very big plans for Tears For Fears in 2018 and beyond!

About Tears for Fears
Representing an inimitable intersection of pop palatability, clever and cognizant lyricism, guitar bombast, and new wave innovation, their catalog spans a string of classic album, namely the gold-certified debut The Hurting , quintuple-platinum BRIT Award-winning Songs from the Big Chair , and Seeds of Love . The latter proved to be Roland and Curt's last collaboration together until Everybody Loves A Happy Ending in 2004, which rekindled the creative fire between them. Breaking another quiet spell, the boys engaged in a three-year touring whirlwind across North America, Japan, South Korea, Manila, and South America beginning in 2010. 2013 saw them return with their first recorded music in a decade: a cover of Arcade Fire's "Ready to Start." It proved to be a welcome addition to their three-decade discography of immortal hits ranging from "Mad World," "Change," and "Pale Shelter" to "Everybody Wants To Rule The World," "Shout," "Sowing The Seeds of Love," and "Everybody Loves A Happy Ending." Following a sold-out 2017 co-headline tour with Hall & Oates and standout sets at Rock In Rio and "British Summer Time" in Hyde Park, they release their first official career-spanning Greatest Hits collection, Rule The World. It features the first new original compositions between Roland and Curt together since 2004: "I Love You But I'm Lost" and "Stay."
