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.”

Listen to “Break The Man” below.
