Let the cross generational love continue. Lorde has now covered ‘Everybody Wants To Rule The World’ for The Hunger Games and we had the pleasure of hearing it a couple of months ago. We love it.
Here’s the second song we worked on when we got back in the studio together – a cover of Hot Chip’s “And I Was A Boy From School”
The Peel Sessions were recorded live for @BBC Radio 1 in 1982. These four tracks will be availble for the first time ever on the The Hurting Box Set. You can listen to them now on our Soundcloud page.

Listen to the extended version of Pale Shelter from the original 12″
This version was a hit in NY clubs and the UK dance charts, which were the first hints of success for us.

We’re very excited to announce the release of special anniversary editions of our debut album ‘The Hurting’.
The first 500 people who buy the box set will also get a 7” single of ‘Change’ / ‘The Conflict’ in the rare European black and white sleeve.
Having appreciated artists like Kanye West, Katy Perry, Kimbra, Nas, Gary Jules/Michael Andrews, Adam Lambert & Dizzee Rascal covering & sampling our songs over the past years, we agreed that some reciprocal cross-generational love was in order. We decided to give Arcade Fire a twist of TFF. Enjoy.
30 years ago today, we released The Hurting.
