“In early 2020, Curt and I sat down together with just a couple of acoustic guitars, Roland Orzabal said.” “The first time in decades. We needed a meeting of minds, a coming together psychically. We were literally going back to the drawing board looking for some depth, heart and soul with which to complete our album. Curt came up with this simple folk/country riff, a little bit Dylan, a little bit Johnny Cash, and then we were off.
It was the complete opposite of what we had been trying to do for many years – searching for the elusive, modern hit single. We felt suddenly unencumbered, free if you like, no longer worrying about the market, about success, but drawing on influences from our childhoods. It was at this point that the whole album started opening up. ‘No Small Thing’ was the key, the thing that turned a red light green.”
“‘No Small Thing” feels like it could have been a song from a seventies or sixties acoustic folk album with how the track starts,” Curt Smith added. “The fact that we felt confident enough to go from there to the end of the song to where its just absolute mayhem speaks to that sense of freedom, and that’s our comfort zone musically.”
The Tipping Point is up for pre-order now HERE. The album is available on special limited edition Spring Green Vinyl and Limited Edition CD; each accompanied by a limited edition lithograph print. The album is also available on Limited Edition Cassette, as well as for pre-save across all major streaming services.

Back in October, the band premiered the album’s title track.
