Darren records song for FINN BROTHERS tribute album
: 16 2010 : 0 : 2176    
DARREN HAYES RECORDS HIS OWN UNIQUE VERSION OF A TIM FINN CLASSIC FOR FINN BROTHERS TRIBUTE ALBUM 'HE WILL HAVE HIS WAY'

Darren Hayes has recorded his own unique interpretation of Tim Finn's extraordinary song 'Not Even Close' for a tribute album of artists covering the songs of Neil and Tim Finn titled 'He Will Have His Way' to be released in Australia on November 12.

He Will Have His Way: The Songs of Tim & Neil Finn brings together a diverse collective of talent from Australia and the Finn brothers homeland of New Zealand to honour and celebrate these songwriting greats. Musical legends such as Paul Kelly, Jimmy Barnes, Paul Dempsey, Darren Hayes, Chris Cheney, former members of Midnight Oil [in their new band The Break] and Empire Of The Suns Luke Steele [here fronting his original outfit, The Sleepy Jackson] share the stage with popular contemporaries and newcomers such as Sydney acts Boy & Bear, Art Vs Science, Philadelphia Grand Jury and Angus Stone [of Angus & Julia Stone]; Melbourne artists Dan Sultan and Oh Mercy; Queenslanders Busby Marou; and New Zealands Artisan Guns and Kody Nielson.

Each artist brings their unique musical perspective to reinterpreting a Finn classic, along with the odd hidden gem from the brothers extraordinary catalogue.

Darren said

"Like most Australians my age I've grown up with the music of the Finn brothers being the soundtrack to my life whether I was aware of it or not. From Split Enz to Crowded House and then Neil and Tim's solo projects the music was and remains a constant in Australian life.

So much so that my mind associates the music as being uniquely Australian though actually from New Zealand. Claiming the music as my own has often led to fierce debates with Kiwis but one fact remains - it is music that reminds me of home. When I was asked to record Tim's incredible song 'Not Even Close' I was of course daunted. How do you face off against your peer and do it justice? The truth is I didn't have to. The song wrapped itself around me in my tiny London recording studio and I found myself singing the words as though I'd written them myself. The instant I lay down the harmonies I felt as though I were a Finn brother. There is something in the DNA of the songwriting - perhaps the intervals between the notes that is instantly recognisably 'Finn'. And I was instantly homesick. It's a tremendous, layered and heavy monster of a song and I'm honoured to have been given the rare treat of recording my own tribute."
