Rock stars are sheltering in place like the rest of us. Curt Smith of Tears for Fears and his daughter, Diva, have used some of that time to share a new acoustic version of TFF's 1982 hit single, "Mad World." A video of the performance was gifted to the world by fashion designer Tory Burch on Youtube.

"One of the songs that I played over and over again growing up was 'Mad World' by Tears for Fears," Burch wrote with the clip. "Hard to imagine a song that seems more relevant right now. I am so happy to share a new beautiful version by my dear friend Curt Smith of TFF with his daughter Diva recorded for us from their quarantine life in LA."
