I've been saying "guys, the new album is NOT Crowded House." I guess it's possible I'm wrong about that, but I'm thinking brownie is right that the CH guitar thing is about the reissues.

I think we might just find that the person closest on the left in the bubble is a Mick as opposed to a Nick (and probably a foot taller than Nick, but also pretty handy in a rhythm section...).

I don't have time to dig for it now, but Neil said fairly recently (radio interview I believe) that he was primarily focused at the moment on both a solo project, and a project with Liam. (this was AFTER another interview where he claimed he was working on 'everything' and wasn't sure what would emerge next) So it's one of those two things. It's not Crowded House. Sorry, I wish it was too.

Yeah, I think I read it too. But, you never know with Neil. Still hoping it would be at least Finn Brothers record, for touring sake. Solo projects or with Liam, who has in Europe status "who???" means only few dates in UK, which is too far and too expensive journey for me. And, for new record speaking, I would mostly love to hear new CH, honestly.

I'll take whatever he offers. Nothing he's released since 1995 matches the quality of those first four CH albums and, to be honest, I find there's little difference between the two newer CH albums and his solo stuff. If he wants to work with Mark and Nick, that's fabulous and I welcome it wholeheartedly. But equally, if he's got a new band on board, I look forward to whatever they produce immensely as well. I thought his last touring band was super.

It's true that there is no confirmation, but there's no reason why it can't be Crowded House (and family) in the picture. Neil's upcoming solo dates, in no way have to be related to whatever album he's recording these days. Realistically, and based on history, this album probably won't see...

Hi, everyone! Great news, indeed. Fingers crossed for next CH album, not only CH is my "favorit Neils child", but it means that we from south/east Europe can hope to see some touring near Croatia. maybe in 2017./18. hipiyeyyeyeye And another mystical question is: who is producer? We all know how important is that, specially on Neils albums. Greetings to all you, fans, stay well

I am heartbroken that I can no longer go to the Crowded House Encore show in Sydney on Sat Nov 26 but would love to help another fan go! I'm selling my two tickets for face value (or rounded down to $120 AUD each). I'm willing to sell them separately. I hope a fellow Frenz can use them and will enjoy the show as much as I would expect!

Farewell To The World 1996 or Encore 2016

allthingsfinn ·
Just wondering among fellow finn fans which is your favorite concert or what you love about each. Farewell is the best concert by any band in my opinion and also Pauls last which makes it that more emotional. Encore the band are so tight and you can tell from the music how much fun the guys are having.

Didn't see the farewell concert I wasn't well enough so missed it. The 2016 encore was amazing. I went with my daughter and she even said it was the most magical concert she's ever been to. She is only 18. Was great to have been able to share a concert with her. She also loves their music now too ��

Actually, I agree with the assessment that at that point the Crowdies were rather concerned that they might mess something up while writing themselves into history, so when it comes to concerts that have been a/v-documented, I would go for Fleadh '94 as a better concert than FTTW '96. The Encores I have neither watched on TV nor attended, so I cannot testify to the qualities of these.

Well, if it is Crowded House I would say there would not be a lot of talk about it. I can't see any reason why it would not be, its been a while since the last two now, and they were very laid back records, I definitely think that because that 5th album never got made the band are keen to make something to revive the groups musical direction, and the reissues would be a good reason for that too. Neil and Liams solo albums were not being recorded till much recently so... Yes I would say it is...

I think the Liam and Neil album will be very good. But a new Crowded House album would be even better, their best in a long time, or Neil Finns best anyway. And if they do a new album I would say it would be Mark and Neil and the other two perhaps not until they do some shows. They would have no problem using session musicians. It wouldn't matter that much. They would not be leaving it to far into the future I don't think, I think because of the re-releases and reunion shows they probably...

To me (and with plenty of hindsight), Crowded House split up probably for a couple of reasons; 1. Neil had a young family back then, probably was tired of travelling and being away from them for long periods and his oldest friend had left. 2. At that stage had been in bands for approaching 20 years and was worn down by the routine of write, record, promote and tour. 3. Wanted to change almost for the sake of change. Try whistling this was/is a fabulous record. If you remember in those days...

Steve Shealy I'm also hoping that it will be very much a family project, instead of a bunch of studio musicians backing them. I can't imagine Elroy not drumming for it, and Harper has been supporting Neil a lot on keys. I would love to see every family member involved in some way. I really can't think of a more talented musical family, period. I feel the opposite. Neil's last few records, PJ Club and Dizzy Heights, have been dominated by his family. He's been playing with them in some...

The fact Neil said at the Sydney concerts "No - beginning of a new era" when someone yelled out "End of an era" and some odd messages about recording says a lot to me. Who could predict the reissues coming out? Had someone not demanded it? In which it was given away early last year? And then the message was removed because of record label "concentration", as always. I find it interesting someone thinks their is a Crowded House album already recorded, and if Neil does think that the second...

It's been 38 months since the last release of all new Neil Finn material. 41 months is the record (from One Nil to Everyone Is Here). Average wait time between Neil Finn albums is 30 months. So we must be getting really close to something!

Surely the Liam and Neil record will be first. That is what its shown has been worked on so far by video. I am betting a Crowded House album comes before a Neil Finn solo album, since he did one not so long ago. I'm no psychic, but I am telepathic.

Really, there is no new Crowded House album . Any time he's been asked about it in the last few years, even during their Encore shows, Neil said something like "the band's up on blocks in the garage," as in not broken up but in storage for now. On the other hand he HAS talked about an album with Liam, and vaguely about a solo-ish album. All available information says there is no Crowded House album recorded or in the works, can we put that to bed? My theory is that the non-Liam album has...

You can never tell what will really happen. But my instinct (har har) is that a new Crowded House album is sooner. I don't see why Neil would want to do another solo album right away (his own one) - because he already has just done a fairly carefully crafted one. I feel his interests is another Crowded House album after the Liam Finn album he is joining in on (which will be very interested). And yes, it has been 7 years since the last album, so there must be some Crowded House music laying...

The only Crowded House album I think that will be released is the anniversary show from last year. I think Neil will be quite happy to play live with Crowded House much like he does with Split Enz but I don't really think there will be a new Crowded House album. i hope there will be a new record in the autumn - perhaps the one with Liam (assuming it is convenient with Liam and family) but more likely the solo one which utilises songs recorded with Mick Fleetwood last year. It isn't...

Why would they re-release their albums and do live shows? IT WAS THEIR 30TH ANNIVERSARY. You're spouting a lot of hopeful speculation that is flatly contradicted by information we already have. Nothing else to say really. Your fantasy sounds nice, but that's all it is.

I think we can be pretty sure that there is no new Crowded House album in the pipeline (as much as I would love one).

Mick spoke a bit about staying with Neil and drumming on some songs at a Meet and Greet session before one of his gigs. He mentioned he was going back to do some more recording after his...

If he was working on new Crowded House material, I am fairly sure we would have at least a hint about it.

Hey Herbalife - I would love a straight forward guitar driven Crowded House album. I really enjoyed Time on Earth but it was recorded as a solo album (and it sounded that way to me). But I got really excited after the ToE tour when Neil said that with the band now back together they were going to record a new album that would capture the essence of the Crowded House live sound that they had never quite managed in the studio and they were going to develop the songs playing live.

To say the truth, no one really knows because who could of predicted Crowded House returning in 2007? Really? Maybe because of Paul H and the 10 years since the Sydney shows was the reason so Neil thought, why not..."make this solo album into something" because he knew many didn't want the band to come to an end anyway. At the time it was not rocknroll enough for me so I didn't bother with it, but when I did listen too it, I was surprised by how good it was, some of it was WAY too laid back...

There's a chance we could be in a re-thinking phase. Much like happened with Everyone is Here or Time On Earth. Neil seems to get pretty far into a project and then step back and reconsider it. It may be annoying and cause delays but you can't argue with the results. Re-recording Everyone Is Here was the right call and so was making Time On Earth into a CH record. I wonder if he's having second thoughts about his solo work, recent work with Tim, his album with Liam and his desire to some...

It might be a better thread if there as an album to talk about (haha) And yes, no one really knows, but my feeling is a Crowded House album (as I keep saying) will be sooner than later. It won't be a labored over album either, it will be much more in line with that 5th record they never made. Probably thanks to the Sydney concerts (where they left off) It will be interesting for sure to hear what Neil and Liam do and as well as another solo record to follow on from Dizzy Heights.
