Tim Finn World Album Premier

TIM FINN WORLD ALBUM PREMIER ANNOUNCED!

TIM FINN INVITES YOU TO ENTER...

'IMAGINARY KINGDOM'

On Friday October 6 at Sky City Theatre Auckland, Tim Finn will launch his brand new solo album “Imaginerary Kingdom” accompanied by a full band.

Tickets go on sale this coming Monday morning from Ticketek and selected Sounds Stores. With each ticket purchased you get a copy of the new album or in the case of tickets bought at Ticketek, a redeemable voucher.

Tim Finn, the exceptionally gifted singer/songwriter from Te Awamutu, New Zealand has announced details of his new studio album, Imaginary Kingdom. The album will be released in New Zealand on October 7th. The first single Couldn't Be Done, is currently at radio and TV being #1 most added in New Zealand.

Finn has enjoyed a varied and remarkable career, from his days as founder of legendary 70's/80's art-pop group Split Enz to his time in Crowded House with brother (and former Split Enz band mate) Neil, as well as an outstanding solo career, an eclectic album project (ALT) and two Finn Brothers albums...all have which have well and truly cemented Tim Finn's position in music folklore.

More recently, there has been a resurgence of love for all things Finn with the recent Finn Brothers album ‘Everyone Is Here’, the hugely popular ‘She Will Have Her Way’ tribute album and the triumphant Split Enz reunion tour of Australia. It's been this resurgence, coupled with Tim's desire to again express himself as a solo artist that has resulted in the songs on ‘Imaginary Kingdom’.

Imaginary Kingdom was recorded in Nashville...not the Nashville that instantly comes to mind, think more in the deep, cool underbelly of this musical city. The band Tim and producer Bobby Huff (Julian Lennon, LeAnne Rimes, Jordan McCoy) assembled for this album consisted of Huff on drums/keys/BV’s, engineer John Painter on bass and brass and school friend Dale Oliver on guitars. They all connected with Tim’s songs and played it from the heart in Painter’s back-yard studio. From the eternal optimism of first single ‘Couldn't Be Done’ to the widescreen beauty of ‘Astounding Moon’ and back to the ascending bass lines and yearning melody of ‘Horizon’.

It will be a very special world premier!!!
