Hear an early instrumental mix of Tears For Fears’ Sowing the Seeds of Love

Another bonus track to whet your appetite

With just over a month until Tears For Fears‘ The Seeds of Love box set is finally released, here’s an opportunity to listen to one of the many bonus tracks: an early instrumental mix of the lead single ‘Sowing the Seeds of Love’.

Unlike its follow-up, ‘Woman in Chains’, no instrumental of ‘Sowing the Seeds of Love’ was ever issued, so here’s a rare chance to examine the layers, take a good listen to Chris Hughes’ drums and that solo organ courtesy of Ian Stanley!

Although this instrumental is fairly well developed and the structure and most of the components are in place, it is still an ‘early mix’ so there’s little guitar and certain synth sounds that will have you running to the original to check if they are they’re in the finished article!

This version of ‘Sowing the Seeds of Love’ is exclusive to box set (it’s on CD 3: “The Moon: Radio Edits and Early Mixes”) and along with the other formats, that will be released on 9 October 2020.

SDE had a great deal of involvement in this set and as such we are selling the box set – and the black vinyl edition –  over on the SDE shop. Use this link to pre-order or alternatively make use of the buy buttons below. SDE stock allocations are guaranteed – if you pre-order we will supply!
