Tears For Fears cover Arcade Fire's 'Ready To Start'
Somerset band offer 'some reciprocal cross-generational love'
UK electronic band Tears For Fears have released a cover of Arcade Fire's "Ready To Start".
The track, from the Canadian septet's third album The Suburbs, is a firm fan favourite, but only hit number 67 in the UK chart upon its release in February 2011.
According to NME, Tears For Fears are currently working on a follow-up to the 2004 album "Everybody Loves A Happy Ending".
Despite a string of hits throughout the eighties, the band are perhaps best known to younger music fans for having their own song, "Mad World," covered and sent to Christmas number one by Gary Jules.
The new track - their first new material since 2004 - was posted on Soundlcloud.
On their official site, the band wrote: "Having appreciated artists like Kanye West, Katy Perry, Kimbra, Nas, Gary Jules/Michael Andrews, Adam Lambert & Dizzee Rascal covering & sampling our songs over the past years, we agreed that some reciprocal cross-generational love was in order.
"We decided to give Arcade Fire a twist of TFF. Enjoy."
The version is below:
