Tears For Fears – “Break The Man”Tears For Fears – “Break The Man”

Tears For Fears are releasing The Tipping Point, their first new album in 17 years, next month. And today, following the title track and “No Small Thing,” the British synth-pop greats are back with a third single called “Break The Man,” which was co-written and co-produced by Charlton Pettus.

“‘Break The Man’ is about a strong woman, and breaking the patriarchy,” says Curt Smith. “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.”
