Tears for Fears have released a new song called ‘Break the Man’, taken from their upcoming album The Tipping Point. The single, which follows the title track and ‘No Small Thing’, was co-written and co-produced by Charlton Pettus. Check it out below.
“‘Break The Man’ is about a strong woman, and breaking the patriarchy,” Curt Smith said in a statement. “I feel that a lot of the problems we’ve been having as a country and even worldwide to a certain degree has come from male dominance. It’s a song about a woman who is strong enough to break the man. For me, that would be an answer to a lot of the problems in the world — a better male-female balance.”
The Tipping Point, the group’s first album in 17 years, arrives February 25 via Concord Records.
