Tears For Fears The Seeds Of Love: 4CD / Blu-ray Super Deluxe Edition!

Remastered Deluxe 2CD, remastered LP + D2C picture disc LP, booklet and tour program

Blu-ray includes original album mix and Steven Wilson 5.1 remix

More than 30 years ago, Tears for Fears released its third long-player The Seeds of Love. The album has taken on mythical status for its scope, ambition, timeless musicality and the fact that it took more than four years to record. For music fans and audiophiles the world over, the album continues to astound with its depth and sheer audacity, which is why with three decades on it, it has barely aged a day. As Roland Orzabal puts it, "Out of all our albums, I'd probably rank it highest. I think it surprised a lot of people, a lot of our peers as well, people who maybe we were being compared to in the mid-Eighties." Curt Smith said, "The tracks I liked then, I still like now. ‘Woman in Chains,' ‘Badman's Song,' ‘Sowing the Seeds of Love,' and ‘Advice For The Young At Heart' have all stuck around. We still play those live."

The super deluxe box set consists of four CDs and one Blu-Ray, which fully tells the story of how this extraordinary album came to be. The box set includes 22 unreleased tracks from demo sessions, live jams, studio sessions along with a definitive set of b-sides, and rare mixes.

Highlights include demos of "Advice For The Young At Heart" with Roland Orzabal singing lead vocal and "Rhythm of Life," which didn't make it onto The Seeds of Love and was later given to Oleta Adams for her Circle of One album. The Blu-ray also features a stunning 5.1 mix by Grammy-nominated artist Steven Wilson.
