Tears For Fears have released “No Small Thing,” the latest single from their new album, The Tipping Point, which is set to drop on February 25 via Concord Records.
“No Small Thing” was the first song that Tears For Fears duo, Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, wrote for The Tipping Point.
Explaining about “No Small Thing,” Orzabal said, “In early 2020, Curt and I sat down together with just a couple of acoustic guitars. The first time in decades. We needed a meeting of minds, a coming together psychically. We were literally going back to the drawing board looking for some depth, heart and soul with which to complete our album. Curt came up with this simple folk/country riff, a little bit Dylan, a little bit Johnny Cash, and then we were off.”
Smith added, “‘No Small Thing” feels like it could have been a song from a seventies or sixties acoustic folk album with how the track starts. The fact that we felt confident enough to go from there to the end of the song to where it’s just absolute mayhem speaks to that sense of freedom, and that’s our comfort zone musically.”
The group’s last studio album, Everybody Loves A Happy Ending, came out in 2004. The group is set to embark on a 2022 tour in support of The Tipping Point.
