Tears For Fears are writing and recording new original songs for their an album expected during 2014. It will be their first in a decade.
After recent covers of Arcade Fire's "Ready to Start” and Hot Chip’s “And I Was A Boy From School,” the '80s hit-makers have just debuted a new cover of Animal Collective’s “My Girls,” along with a new animated video, which is available now for streaming on Tears For Fears’ website.
Co-founder Roland Orzabal recently told Rolling Stone, "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."
Tears for Fears' profile was raised again when Lorde (of "Royals" fame) covered "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" for the movie Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
