Neil Finn Announces New Album 'Dizzy Heights' Released 10th February 2014

Neil Finn has confirmed the release of a new album 'Dizzy Heights' through Lester Records via Kobalt Label Services (KLS) on 10th February, 2014.  Finn's first release via KLS is available for pre-order

The film was made by Finn, after some images taken from the window of a plane abutted with footage of kids jumping into the sea in Greece. These grainy images play over the whirl of "Divebomber" a song inspired by the World War II film of the same name.  Co-produced by Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, The Flaming Lips, Tame Impala) the album was recorded between Finn's Roundhead studio in Auckland and Fridmann's Tarbox studio in upstate New York.

The record is Neil Finn's third solo outing following, 'Try Whistling This' and 'One Nil (or One All)'.

"I didn't want to make it a solo record in a stripped back singer-songwriter sort of way," says Finn. "I had a feeling Dave would be good at adding some odd shapes to the music. Which I always welcome - making things a little more expansive. He is good at subverting things, and making things sound a bit messed up and not as obvious, rather than being too tasteful, which is always a temptation."

Finn travelled in two bursts to producer Dave Fridmann's Tarbox Road studio in upstate New York. With Fridmann, and in occasional collaboration with New Zealand musicians Connan Mockasin and SJD, Finn has assembled a textured, heady sound, furnished and elevated by woozy strings and soaring vocals.

Neil is set to perform songs from 'Dizzy Heights' in Los Angeles and New York before a sold-out show at St James's Church in Piccadilly, London on November 27th.

1. Impressions

5. Better Than TV
