Tears For Fears Premieres New Song “Break The Man” on BBC Radio 2
- British pop rock band Tears For Fears, consisting of Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, premiered the third single called “Break The Man” from their upcoming seventh studio album “The Tipping Point” on BBC Radio 2 The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show on January 13, 2022.
It was co-written by Curt Smith and Charlton Pettus, and co-produced by Curt Smith, Roland Orzabal and Charlton Pettus.
“Break The Man is about a strong woman, and breaking the patriarchy,” Curt Smith said of the song. “I feel that a lot of the problems we’ve been having as a country and even worldwide to a certain degree has come from male dominance.
“It’s a song about a woman who is strong enough to break the man. For me, that would be an answer to a lot of the problems in the world – a better male-female balance.”
The new album is set to be released on February 25, 2022. It is their first album in 18 years since the 2004 album “Everybody Loves a Happy Ending”.
- The album comprises 10-track. Curt Smith explained of the album, “We got to the point a few years ago where I certainly wasn’t happy with what we were doing. Myself and Roland sat down and I said, ‘Look, if this is what you want to do, then you go ahead and do it, but it’s not for me.’ That ended and we didn’t know what we were going to do. It was sort of up in the air.”
He continued, “Roland said, ‘Look, let’s sit down and talk about this. What do you feel?’ And I said, ‘I think we have some good songs. But I just think that the recordings really aren’t right. They don’t sound like Tears for Fears – they sound like us trying to be someone else’. I think he’d come to the same realisation, having taken time away from it… So we sat down and plotted a path forward of how we could finish an album that we were both happy with.”
