Dizzy New Neil Finn Dates

Neil Finn is mapping out his 2014 plans in support of his upcoming album. The Crowded House vocalist/guitarist and former co-frontman for Split Enz is headed to both the West & East Coast along with a few stops in Canada. He’s also got a couple gigs to do this month.

Finn’s new LP, Dizzy Heights, is due out Feb. 10. Fans who pre-order the album will instantly receive the tunes “Divebomber” and “Flying In The Face Of Love.” Check out the video for “Divebomber” at the end of this post.

The New Zealand musician talked about teaming up with Dizzy Heights co-producer Dave Fridmann, whose resume includes working with such acts as The Flaming Lips and Tame Impala.

“I didn’t want to make it a solo record in a stripped back signer-songwriter sort of way … 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.”

Next week Finn has a few sold-out shows lined up – Nov. 19 at Los Angeles’ Largo and Nov. 21 at New York’s Le Poisson Rouge. After that he’ll take the stage at London’s St James Church Nov. 27.

Following an Australian tour, Finn will be back in North America in late March. Here’s the plan:

March 30 – Seattle, Wash., The Neptune     
April 1 – San Francisco, Calif., Palace Of Fine Arts Theatre     
April 2 – Los Angeles, Calif., Orpheum Theatre     
April 5 – Toronto, Ontario, Queen Elizabeth Theatre     
April 7 – Boston, Mass., Shubert Theatre – Citi Performing Arts Center     
April 8 – New York, N.Y., Town Hall     
April 10 – New Haven, Conn., Shubert Theater     
April 11 – Glenside, Pa., Keswick Theatre     
April 12 – Washington, D.C., Lincoln Theatre

A fanclub presale is ongoing now for select dates. Additional presales are scheduled this week and general onsales are set for Nov. 15.
