Finn welcomes world to his kingdom

Tim Finn has embarked on a tour of the UK and Europe to promote his latest solo album, Imaginary Kingdom. Finn wrote most of the album in NZ, which he says had a major influence on its sound. “Gertrude Stein said, ‘People are the way their land and sky is.’ I think that’s true. Most of my writing was influenced by New Zealand’s land, light, air and water.” Imaginary Kingdom will be released in the US on April 24; a week before Finn joins brother Neil for a Crowded House reunion at California’s Coachella Music Festival.
