Japanese Breakfast has unveiled a new cover of Tears For Fears' 1985 hit "Head Over Heels." The stripped back take on the Donnie Darko soundtrack staple swaps the original's bombast for lullaby synths and hushed vocals from Michelle Zauner. The track is the second of two released via W Hotels' imprint, following her original song "Essentially" which debuted back in April. Proceeds from both tracks will benefit the ACLU.
