Pop veteran Neil Finn has announced the details of his tour next year, to include a performance at Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall on Monday, May 5.

The former Crowded House legend has a highly successful solo career under his belt and will be releasing a new single and new album on the same date after Christmas.

The single is Flying In The Face Of Love, the single is Dizzy Heights and the date for their release is February 10.

Dizzy Heights is to be released through Lester Records via Kobalt Label Services (KLS).

Tickets for all shows on his tour are now on sale and are available from www.livenation.co.uk/artist/neil-finn-tickets

Co-produced by Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, The Flaming Lips, Tame Impala), Dizzy Heights 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,” said 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 traveled in two bursts to 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. 

A short film for the album track Divebomber recently premiered on LA Times’ websiteThe film was made by Finn.
