Radiohead‘s Ed O’Brien and Phil Selway, former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr and Wilco‘s Jeff Tweedy are amongst a host of musicians who are collaborating on the follow-up to Crowded House frontman Neil Finn‘s Seven Worlds Collide project, to raise money for Oxfam International.
Finn explains: “Seven years ago I invited a few friends and fellow musicians to do a special series of concerts in New Zealand under the banner Seven Worlds Collide. The concerts were an amazing experience for all of us and we are delighted to have found an opportunity to gather again, this time to expand the concept and the line-up too.”
Other artists who will take part in the new sessions in New Zealand to create the forthcoming album include Soul Coughing bassist Sebastian Steinberg, violinist Lisa Germano, KT Tunstall, Bic Runga and Liam Finn.
As with the previous Seven Worlds Collide project, live concerts will take place in Auckland in the New Year. More details to be released nearer the time.
