Crowded House Detail First LP In Over 10 Years 'Dreamers Are Waiting', Share New Track To The Island

Thursday, 18 February 2021 Written by Jon Stickler

Crowded House have announced their first album in over a decade.

'Dreamers Are Waiting', the follow-up to 2010's 'Intriguer', is due to arrive on June 4 via EMI Records. It will include the newly released track To The Island, along with their 2020 single Whatever You Want, the video for which featured Mac DeMarco.

Musically, the new offering is a slow-burning pop number that rolls out over a steady drumbeat and swirling vocals, for an almost hypnotising, psychedelic aesthetic. 

The Australian band currently comprises founders Neil Finn — who is also a touring member of Fleetwood Mac — and Nick Seymour, along with returning producer and keyboardist Mitchell Froom, singer and guitarist Liam Finn and his younger brother, drummer Elroy Finn. Discussing the recording of the LP amid the COVID-19 pandemic, frontman Finn said:

"We were fortunate to be recording in the studio right before lockdown and so began this album with band tracks recorded live in a room, all brimming with character and energy. We then spent our strangest year, 2020, at distance from each other but connecting daily, swapping files and making those tracks complete. We're so excited and grateful to be back in one room together now, rehearsing, first to play live in front of audiences in NZ and soon we hope for the rest of the world."

To The Island shares its name with their upcoming New Zealand arena tour, which kicks off in March. They'll also return to the UK as part of their rescheduled European tour in the summer. Tickets are on sale now.
