Tears for Fears wants to rule world again
Tears for Fears, disbanded since 1990, embarks on a new beginning with Everybody Loves a Happy Ending, due April 6 on Arista. The album, a melodic pop collection, came together after Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith tested the waters of a reunion by collaborating on single Closest Thing to Heaven. The song, completed in one day, goes to radio Monday.
At its peak, the British band topped the singles chart with Shout and Everybody Wants to Rule the World, both from 1985’s Songs From the Big Chair, a No. 1 album that sold 5 million copies. Soon after 1989’s The Seeds of Love, Smith quit to escape the pressure-cooker of pop success. He later made a solo album, hosted MTV programs, started a radio show and formed Mayfield with songwriter Charlton Pettus. Orzabal released three albums under the Tears banner and a solo debut.
The songwriting duo plans a tour but isn’t sure yet if Happy Ending marks a fresh page or a final chapter in the Tears for Fears saga.
