Listen: Lily Allen Covers ‘Mad World’ by Tears For Fears

The "No Shame Tour" comes to the Phoenix on October 28

Lily Allen just did a Spotify Singles session where she performed Tears For Fears’ vulnerable and down to earth hit “Mad World.” In addition to the raw cover, she sang her own “Family Man” from this year’s comeback album No Shame.

Allen’s cover of “Mad World” more closely resembles the Gary Jules and Michael Andrews version recorded for the Donnie Darko soundtrack than the original Tears for Fears hit.

Just like Allen’s recent cover of Lykke Li’s “Deep End,” both performances for the Spotify Singles series were stripped down recordings of her singing over a piano with some backing vocals.

Check out the tracks below.
