Tears For Fears – The Hurting
The Hurting is the debut studio album by British new wave band Tears for Fears, released on 7 March 1983. The album peaked at No. 1 on the UK Albums Chart in its second week of release, and was certified Gold by the BPI within three weeks of release. It reached Platinum status in January 1985. The album also entered the Top 40 in several other countries including Canada, Germany and Australia. The Hurting is a loose concept album focusing on themes of child abuse, psychological trauma and depression. Despite its morbid subject matter, the album was a huge commercial success and contains Tears for Fears’ first three hit singles – “Mad World“, “Change“, and “Pale Shelter” – all of which reached the top five in the UK and the Top 40 internationally. It also contains a new version of the band’s first single, “Suffer the Children“, which had originally been released in 1981, while the album version of “Pale Shelter” is also a new recording.
