There’s no denying that Tears for Fears 1985 single, “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” is an ‘80s classic. It still manages to get its fair share of airplay, and has been covered many times since it’s initial release. That said, the latest cover appears to be by Brooklyn synth-popper Brothertiger. He has partnered with the label Reimagine Music to rerecord the entire Tears for Fears album, Songs from the Big Chair, which “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” is on. That album is expected to arrive next month, but right now we have his version of that classic Tears For Fears hit. Check it out below.

Brothertiger Plays Songs from the Big Chair is expected May 19 via Reimagine Music.
