The duo take on the 80s classic.

Following the release of their album ‘Never Let Me Go’ earlier this year, Placebo are now sharing their cover of Tears For Fears’ 80s classic ‘Shout’.

The latest addition to their 80s covers, Placebo have previously covered artists such as Sinead O’Connor (‘Jackie’), The Smiths (‘Bigmouth Strikes Again’), Pixies (‘Where Is My Mind?’) and Kate Bush (‘Running Up That Hill’).

Placebo released their latest album ‘Never Let Me Go’ in March this year. In our review of the album, we said, “‘Never Let Me Go’ is lyrically fascinated by the modern world, and while Brian’s grasp on it has become more nuanced than on the clanging ‘Too Many Friends’ in 2013, he seldom comes off as a firebrand, either. After years of reflection, this is a steady steep back towards the future.”

Revisit our full review here, and check out their cover of ‘Shout’ below.
