Tears for Fears have shared a second single from The Tipping Point, their first album in 17 years. "No Small Thing" is a sweeping, cinematic rock anthem that is unlike anything we've heard from Tears for Fears before, and Roland Orzabal says it was key to making the album.

“In early 2020, Curt and I sat down together with just a couple of acoustic guitars," Orzabal says. "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. It was the complete opposite of what we had been trying to do for many years – searching for the elusive, modern hit single. We felt suddenly unencumbered, free if you like, no longer worrying about the market, about success, but drawing on influences from our childhoods. It was at this point that the whole album started opening up. ‘No Small Thing’ was the key, the thing that turned a red light green.”

"No Small Thing" comes with a beautifully shot video directed by Vern Moen and you can watch that below.

The Tipping Point will be out February 25 via Concord Records, and Tears for Fears will be on tour in 2022 with special guests Garbage. Dates wrap up with NYC-area shows at PNC Bank Arts Center on June 24 and Jones Beach on June 25.
