Tears for Fears are readying a new album, The Tipping Point, which will serve as the first new album from Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith since 2004. It’s been previewed over the past few months with a few tracks, and the latest arrived on Thursday.

Titled “Break the Man,” it’s a song with a particular focus. Said Smith in a statement:

“‘Break The Man’ is about a strong woman, and breaking the patriarchy. 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 lands on Feb. 28.

Tears for Fears also detailed a big late Spring/early Summer 2022 tour in support of the record. Garbage will serve as special guests for the U.S. dates, while Alison Moyet will support in the United Kingdom.

“We couldn’t be more excited to start playing concerts again,” said Curt Smith in a statement. “We’ve missed seeing our friends on the road around the world and the energy of performing live.
