Here's a podcast from a few days ago with Mitchell Froom discussing how Dreamers Are Waiting came together.
Lots of interesting info including that the band are planning a tour of Australia this November (Covid situation in Australia permitting):
"Today, legendary producer and Crowded House keyboardist Mitchell Froom joins me to unpack the making of the iconic band’s new album ‘Dreamers Are Waiting’. We talk about how Mitchell helped define the sound of the band twice - first as the producer of their debut album 35 years ago, and again as a fully-fledged member on this new album, the moment the new lineup of the band played together for the first time, why it reminded him of working with Elvis Costello, recording without click tracks or a producer, how they managed to finish the songs remotely during lockdown and how some of them radically transformed, what it was like to revisit classic Crowded House material ahead of their NZ tour earlier this year and whether there are plans for another new record from this incarnation of the band".
