We’re delighted to be in the company of music-loving people who believe in us and are eager to spread the word.” COO of Universal Music Group International Max Hole, added: “Neil Finn has one of those instantly recognisable voices, and is one of the world’s most accomplished songwriters. We are thrilled to be working with Crowded House on Intriguer and beyond.” Crowded House tour Europe in May followed by the US in July. The band formed in 1985.
