Crowded House are set to release their first new album in more than ten years this June, and they’ve just dropped a first taste of it.
Entitled Dreamers Are Waiting, the long-player is set to arrive on June 4.
It’s been preceded by a slinky new single, To the Island, which goes a lot like this:
Crowded House is a real family affair now, with Neil’s sons Liam and Elroy joining in with Nick Seymour and Mitchell Froom.
Says Neil of the new album: “I’ve always been afraid of just repeating the same formulas, and somehow this feels like a fresh and authentic way to re-approach Crowded House today with an awareness of all our history and where, how and why it began in the first place. The original band mentality and philosophy in still in there, especially with Mitchell now part of it again, working in a different way along with Nick and I.”
