W Records, an imprint from W Hotels Worldwide, has released a cover of Tears for Fears’ “Head Over Heels,” by Japanese Breakfast (Michelle Zauner, a Dead Oceans recording artist). Japanese Breakfast joins fellow W Records performers Amber Mark, Perfume Genius and Roosevelt, rounding out the inaugural class of W Records. “Japanese Breakfast has recorded a beautiful, ethereal reimagining of ‘Head Over Heels’,” said Curt Smith co-founder of Tears For Fears.
W Records will be reaching beyond music to support a cause that’s important to both W Hotels and the artist. A portion of the proceeds from the streaming of both Japanese Breakfast tracks will benefit the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
“Working with Japanese Breakfast on this track has been an incredible experience – collaborating with a passionate musician to support an important organization has really been rewarding,” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels Worldwide. “W Records has always been about inspiring musicians to get creative and it’s been amazing to see Japanese Breakfast’s journey and exploration with us at W. We are excited for the world to hear her rendition of ‘Head Over Heels’ and help support the work of the ACLU.”
