The British group Tears For Fears will release their seventh album entitled

The Tipping Point

Curt Smith and Roland Orzabal, the two founding members, mentioned the possibility of an album in 2016. The duo then worked with some of the

"best songwriters of the moment",

without specifying a name. But those sessions were an

“epic disaster

as they explained to

Rolling Stone

The result is a thirteen-song album, which mixes tracks from the aborted first session and their guitar-in-hand reunion.
