Örebro, Sweden-based alternative/rock outfit Smash Into Pieces has just released their new single “Mad World” and it hits nice and hard. The cover of the Tears for Fears original dropped today, January 24th, 2020, via Gain/Fifth Island Music.
Commenting on the tune, the band’s Per Bergquist (guitar, bass, vocals) said, “For a while now we have talked about recording a cover but we just couldn’t make up our minds about what song. After listening to our fans in to which song they would like us to record. I remember one girl writing to us about “MAD WORLD.” After listening to the lyrics, letting it sink in, I just couldn’t think of a more perfect track that would fit better on the ARCADIA album than ‘Mad World.’”
Yep, it’s a “Mad World,” but at least we’ve got great music to help us along.
