Eight years ago, former Crowded House singer-songwriter Neil Finn released a live album, credited to "Neil Finn and Friends," titled 7 Worlds Collide. Ever since then, Finn has been enthusiastic to put together another record, this time in the studio. Early in 2009, he assembled a group of friends and musicians in Auckland to record an album of original material. His enthusiasm brought together a wide variety of popular artists, including Sharon and Liam Finn, KT Tunstall, Jeff Tweedy and Glenn Kotche of Wilco, and Ed O'Brien and Phil Selway of Radiohead.

Set List

  • "Too Blue"
  • "Reptile"
