Finnk Again

The Finn Brothers, Neil and Tim Finn, re-unite for Everyone Is Here,
their new album released 23rd August 2004

Neil and Tim Finn are set to release their first collaborative studio album in over eight years. Recorded in Los Angeles, the title reflects not only the musical reunion of the former Crowded House and Split Enz front men (Neil and Tim respectively) but also the involvement of both former and current musical cohorts.

“The last time we did a Finn Brothers record (ŒFinn¹ 1995), it was kind of a side project in many ways in the timing of it”, says Neil. “We only toured for a few weeks and we only took four weeks to make the album. This one we've been a lot more deliberate about and we want to give it its due and spread the word. We feel very, very proud of it.”

Everyone Is Here was produced by Mitchell Froom and mixed by Bob Clearmountain, the team behind much of Crowded House's catalogue, including their critically lauded album Woodface.

“Our roots are in live music, even if it's just me and Neil playing acoustic guitars together”, says Tim. “It works better if there's more than one person working at a time and people playing off of each other. There's a lot of that on the record, and there's a really strong band feeling”.

For the recording Neil and Tim recruited many of the best musicians around: multi-instrumentalist Jon Brion, drummer Matt Chamberlain and two bass players: Sebastian Steinberg and Davey Faragher. On the production side they recruited Adam Kasper to record (Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age) with
string arrangements by Tony Visconti (David Bowie, T. Rex, Mercury Rev)

The lead-off single from the album is Won't Give In released August 9th, and The Finn Brothers will launch the single and album with a very special gig at London¹s Regents Park Open Air Theatre on August 8th. An extensive UK tour will follow in October:
