Brandi Carlile Covers Tears For Fears’ ‘Mad World’
Brandi Carlile presented a livestream concert on Sunday night that included a performance of the Tears For Fears classic “Mad World.” Carlile shared video of her “Mad World” cover from Sunday’s show.
The livestreamed concert began with a complete performance of Brandi’s 2009 studio album, Give Up The Ghost. Carlile ended the webcast with covers of Elton John’s “Madman Across The Water” and Tears For Fears’ “Mad World.” Brandi played “Mad World” in concert eight prior times as per Setlist.FM.
Tears For Fears originally released “Mad World” on 1982’s The Hurting. Carlile’s version is more akin to Gary Jules’ cover of the song. Brandi was joined by a cellist for Sunday’s “Mad World.” On-demand video of the entire set is available for purchase via Veeps.
