Eighties electro-veterans unveil dubstep version of 'The Suburbs' track

Tears For Fears have posted a cover of Arcade Fire‘s ‘Ready To Start’ online.

The ’80s electro-veterans have posted a dubstep take on the 2010 track from the Canadian band’s third album ‘The Suburbs’ – scroll down below to hear it. The cover is the first material Tears For Fears have unveiled since their 2004 album ‘Everybody Loves A Happy Ending’. They are currently in the studio working on the album’s follow up.

Meanwhile, Arcade Fire are set to release a new album on October 29, with fans suggesting it could be called ‘Reflektor’ after a circular graphic containing letters spelling out the word appeared in cities around the world.

Earlier this year former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy spoke to NME about the band’s new album, which he is helping produce. Quizzed on what it sounds like, Murphy said: “It sounds like Arcade Fire in the way that only Arcade Fire sound like Arcade Fire, you know? It’s really fucking epic. Seriously. I mean, I feel at this point like I’m too close to it to really talk it up and do it justice, you know?”

Arcade Fire released their debut album ‘Funeral’ in 2004. This was followed by 2007’s ‘Neon Bible’ and 2010’s ‘The Suburbs’.
