Pleasantly Rough: 7 Worlds Collide

Neil Finn’s latest album, 7 Worlds Collide brings together Pearl Jams’ Eddie Vedder, Tim Finn, Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien and ex-Smith’s legend Johnny Marr. BBC: “Finn is a consumate master of his craft”. Rolling Stone: “Pleasantly rough edges – compared to the pop perfectionism of Finn’s previous recordings – are key to making this a gem, all the more valuable for being less precious than the studio efforts.” Canoe: “There’s so much here to enjoy. And nothing to dislike”. And Billboard: “hats off to Finn for coming up with a great idea – and to his friends for coming through”. All the royalties from the project will go to charity. Buy/listen to 7 Worlds Collide in the NZEdge shop.
