Yesterday online, an EP was released by Tim Finn… two new versions of Six Months in a Leaky Boat, titled: “Ono Marama Takerehāia-Ngawiri (Chill
Mix] / Six Months In A Leaky Boat
("Aotearoa" 2022 Remix)”. The first was a te reo version of Six Months in a Leaky Boat, and the second was a re-recording of the original (with correct pronunciation of ‘Aotearoa’).
I’m assuming the backing vocals are from his translator Hana Mereraiha.
He talks about this in this article: https://i.stuff.co.nz/entertai...e-it-brought-me-home
I really enjoyed listening to these two songs, it was very refreshing. Quite indistinguishable to 1982! What are your thoughts?
