Stuart Semple has created an original acrylic and charcoal on canvas painting using the hue, titled ‘SHOUT’, this forms the cover artwork for the limited-edition record cover.

Powerful and visceral, an expression of the emotive anthem, the artwork also enacts a physical concept that enables you to interact with the packaging to extend the shout, literally.

 

 

“In the mid 1980’s when I was a teenager, Shout by Tears for Fears served as part of my political awakening. Today I realise that it could be about anything that angers or frustrates a person. For me it’s a call to arms for self-expression, speaking one’s own truth.
As I watched my son’s generation become more politicised, and the world continue to crumble around us, I wanted to offer him & his contemporaries a protest anthem, since it appears that it is mostly them who still have the capacity to save us from ourselves.
Shout’s essence as a song is its simplicity, it feels very natural to engage directly with it. This rallying cry against apathy will hopefully provide a context for those who care to express their anger. Or simply offer some kind of catharsis. It certainly still does both for me.”
