The current lineup is Neil Finn, Liam Finn (guitar, vocals?), Mitchell Froom (keyboards, production?), Nick Seymour and Elroy Finn (drums).
It's not a glorified Neil solo album, at least in my opinion, they've got Neil, Nick and Froom involved. They gathered properly as a band in Los Angeles in late 2019/early 2020. It seems like they were in the thick of recording the album when the pandemic hit, so some of it must have been finished during the lockdown.
I'm still curious about some of the other credits, like who officially produced it? Neil and Mitchell, I would assume? And who mixed it - I would guess either Tchad Blake or Bob Clearmountain.
The snippet posted above is promising. It sounds like Neil is indeed back in Crowded House mode as I think of it, or at least as I prefer it, the classic style of their earlier albums, listenable and catchy. Kind of a "Cruel to Be Kind" vibe to that one. I'm excited to hear more.
