The Seeds of Love is the third album by the British band Tears for Fears, released in September 1989.
The album, which reportedly cost over £1 million (GBP) to produce, retained the band’s epic sound while showing increasing influences ranging from jazz and blues to The Beatles, the latter of which is most evident on the hit single “Sowing the Seeds of Love”.
The Seeds of Love was a big international success, entering the UK Album Chart at number one and reaching the top ten in numerous other countries including the U.S. It has been certified Platinum in several territories including the United Kingdom, the United States, France, Germany, Canada, and the Netherlands. Despite its success, it would be the last album that bandmembers Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith would work on together for over a decade.
