Music news

Crowded House publishes “ Oh Hi », his first single since 2021.

Crowded House has released a new single, “ Oh Hi “. The upbeat song, the band’s first original music in two years, was influenced by frontman Neil Finn’s support of So They Can, an international nonprofit that builds schools in remote areas of Kenya and Tanzania. .

I hope the song will be understood without the need to know the storyFinn said in a statement. But she is very inspired by these incredible children and their magnificence. »

Crowded House released new music in 2021 with the album Dreamers Are Waiting. The band was previously on hiatus, with Finn joining Fleetwood Mac in 2018. But the musician decided to bring Crowded House back in 2021 with his sons Liam and Elroy as official members.

We don’t want to be the same group nowFinn told WECBin 2021. I like to think that songs can be as good as each other. Some people won’t find them as immediately catchy or classic, but you have to remember that when we handed our first record to Capitol, no one said it was going to go straight to the radio. They said to us: “I don’t know if you have the singles”. Sometimes hits and popular songs aren’t obvious until they happen. »

He added of his future plans for Crowded House: “ We feel enormous potential in the group. We did these shows and we grew. This allowed us to marvel at it all. We’d like to get together and record a new album next year, if all goes well. »
