So i hate waiting for albums to come out that i really want to listen too.. and theres 15 days before this one comes out.. i thought i would give you all the heads up because if boy n bears version of Fall At Your Feet is anything to go by.. this album is going to be amazing..

Next month will see the release of He Will Have His Way: The Songs of Tim & Neil Finn. It’s the ‘male sequel’ to 2005’s chart-topping She Will Have Her Way, an album of diverse covers by local female performers, which sold over 300,000 copies and gathered plenty of critical acclaim.

The new disc sees local musical legends – from Paul Kelly to Paul Dempsey, Chris Cheney to Jimmy Barnes, Luke Steele and more, as well as a slew of newcomers (from Boy & Bear to Art Vs Science) offering up their own unique take on the Finn Brothers’ extensive back catalogue. The 16 acts take on Crowded House ballads (including two renditions of “Better Be Home Soon”), radio classics (such as “Four Seasons in One Day”, which appears here as a duet), as well as Split Enz pop hits (e.g.: “I See Red”).

Other artists appearing on the compilation include Darren Hayes, former members of Midnight Oil (via in their new band, the Break), Philadelphia Grand Jury, Angus Stone, Dan Sultan, Oh Mercy and more.
