Tears For Fears ‘proud’ of their new album “Tipping Point”

Tears For Fears are “so proud” of their new album Tipping Point, Music News reports.

The 80s pop duo – which consists of Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, both 60 – think their new release – which came out on Friday (25.02.22) – is “an album of now”, the platform adds.

After 17 years since they released a new album, Curt told the Sun: “The Tipping Point’ is an album now. There are some very contemplative songs, some sadder subjects, but it still leaves you with a sense of optimism.

“It’s the ultimate Tears For Fears album and we are both so, so proud of it.”

Roland admitted that the “task” was to make a record that was “representative” of the group – who formed in 1981.

He said: “The task was how to make an album representative of us, at 60.”

Roland added: “How can we bring our life experience good and bad to the table and make something that speaks to people. Our best work, and the work that’s lasted over the years is the stuff that resonates with people.”

Roland was prompted to begin work on the album – and reunite with Curt – back in 2017 following the death of his first wife Caroline, who passed away after dealing with alcohol abuse-induced dementia for five years after 35 years of marriage.
