Finn’s Mac experience leads to reconstituted Crowded House
NEW YORK (AP) — Touring as a member of Fleetwood Mac in 2018-19 made Neil Finn appreciate the memorable band in his own history.
Two years later, Finn has brought that group, Crowded House, back to life with his sons Liam and Elroy, producer Mitchell Froom and original bass player Nick Seymour. A new album, “Dreamers Are Waiting,” arrives Friday.
“There’s a sense of occasion attached to that band, in my head, I suppose,” Finn, 63, said on a video call from his native New Zealand.
“Coming off of Fleetwood Mac, when we surprisingly had the opportunity to be part of a great, classic band, it reminded me of the gravitas and honor that comes with that,” the singer and songwriter said. “In the audience there were young people who had grown up with the songs, and were singing them as if they were just as current today as they were 30 years ago.”
One singalong included in the set was Finn’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over,” from the 1987 Crowded House debut that also produced the hit “Something So Strong.”
Crowded House never matched that early success in the United States but remained popular worldwide with songs like “Better Be Home Soon,” “Weather With You” and “Distant Sun.” They called it quits with a farewell concert outside the Sydney Opera House in 1996 that drew a crowd estimated around 200,000 people.
