Hear the demo of ‘Rhythm of Life’ from the Tears For Fears Seeds of Love box

First listen to previously unreleased audio

Tears for Fears are today making available, via streaming platforms, the original demo of ‘Rhythm of Life’ a song written by Nicky Holland and Roland Orzabal during the The Seeds of Love sessions but ultimately not included on the album.

This previously unreleased ‘Rhythm Of Life’ demo was recorded in 1986 and features just the two songwriters, with Roland handling lead vocal, Linn Drum programming and keyboards and Nicky on Electric Piano, keyboards and backing vocals.

Rhythm of Life is one of four demos recorded by Roland and Nicky in 1986 which features on CD 4 of the box set: “The Wind: Demos, Diversions and Jams”. Full details in the track listing below. As well as that disc, The Seeds of Love box set also includes the remastered album on CD, a disc of 45s/B-sides, a CD of unreleased early mixes, and a blu-ray audio featuring a Steven Wilson 5.1 mix.

Listen to the demo of ‘Rhythm of Life’, below.

The Seeds of Love is reissued 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.
