Curing the Post-Tour Blues
New Zealand musician Liam Finn admits that on the back of tours around the world with Pearl Jam, The Black Keys and Wilco, he was cast adrift by his sudden sea change. “I didn’t realise how accustomed I’d grown to the touring lifestyle,” Finn says. “I love the adrenaline of performing live. Not having that rush of adrenaline every night, I was wandering around and being fidgety. I had to figure out how to replace that.” FOMO, the title of Finn’s follow up to his debut solo album I’ll Be Lightning, is an acronym that sums it up perfectly: fear of missing out. Finn plays at Queensland’s Splendour in the Grass festival in late July. FOMO is out now.
