Neil Finn releases star-studded new song More Than One of You
Neil Finn has released the first track from his new album project Out of Silence.
More Than One of You was recorded only three days ago during a live session at Finn's Roundhead Studios.
The session was a rehearsal for the full album's recording, which is scheduled for August 25.
More Than One of You features backing vocals from the who's who of New Zealand music, including Don McGlashan, Tiny Ruins, Lawrence Arabia, Jimmy Barnes' daughter EJ Barnes and SJD. All were present for the live recording.
The track was mixed in the studio and sent across the Atlantic to the USA, where it was mastered by Bob Ludwig.
Finn is targeting a similarly tight turnaround for Out of Silence, which is scheduled to be released in full on September 1 - just a week after the recording session.
Finn and guests will perform a livestreamed session from Roundhead in Auckland every Friday until the album's release, culminating on August 25 when they cut the album's tracks.
The live sessions will be streamed via Finn's Facebook page every Friday at 7pm.
