Some forty years into one of music's most impactful partnerships, Tears For Fears have arrived together at The Tipping Point – the group's ambitious, accomplished and surprising first new studio album in nearly two decades. An inspired song cycle that vividly recalls the depth and emotional force of the group's earliest triumphs, The Tipping Point is the bold, beautiful and powerful sound of Tears For Fears finding themselves together all over again. The Tipping Point sees Orzabal and Smith joined by longtime collaborator Charlton Pettus, along with producers and songwriters Sacha Skarbek and Florian Reutter.
"Before everything went so right with this album, everything first had to go wrong," says Roland Orzabal. "It took years, but something happens when we put our heads together. We've got this balance, this push-me-pull-you thing – and it works really well." Agrees Curt Smith: "If that balance doesn't work on a Tears For Fears album, the whole thing just doesn't work. To put it in simple terms, a Tears For Fears record and what people perceive to be the sound of Tears For Fears is the stuff we can both agree on."
"When you've known each other as long as we have, and have worked together as long as we have, there's a bond there that becomes familial. So, it's different from a friendship," Smith adds.
"And it's different from a marriage. It's literally like that's your brother. It's the kind of bond that you can't really break. It can fall apart at times. You separate for periods, which I also think is healthy, really. But in the end, we always seem to find each other again."
