Peter Gabriel has orchestra-fied them. Bruce Springsteen has sang with them. For the past few years, it seems older musicians have been tripping over themselves to pass the torch to Arcade Fire. Now  Tears for Fears add them name to that list with a fantastically synth-ed out cover of “Ready to Start.”

“Having appreciated artists like Kanye West, Katy Perry, Kimbra, Nas, Gary Jules/Michael Andrews, Adam Lambert & Dizzee Rascal covering & sampling our songs over the past years, we agreed that some reciprocal cross-generational love was in order,” they wrote on their website. “We decided to give Arcade Fire a twist of TFF.”

The group has been celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Hurting and we suspect this tied into that somehow, with the same font being reworked for the cover art and all. Hopefully that means there’s more to come.
