Crowded House announce Intriguer track listing + tour dates

The new Crowded House album has a name (Intriguer) and an officially confirmed release date of July 13th via Fantasy/Concord.  And we're all lucky, because Crowded House will of course be hitting the road for an extensive set of tour dates to promote the new album.  (Presumably, this means that I will finally see my first Crowded House gig since 1994!)

Intriguer will feature the following track listing, and will be available in two different flavors including a special deluxe edition featuring a bonus live DVD.

1. Saturday Sun
2. Archer's Arrows
3. Amsterdam
4. Either Side of the World
5. Falling Down
6. Isolation
7. Twice If You're Lucky
8. Inside Out
9. Even If
10. Elephants

Crowded House frontman Neil Finn shares the following information regarding the new album:

"Intriguer is exotic in parts, traditional in origin," says Finn. "Through many a twist and turn we fashioned some drama and intrigue. You will find some threads that go back through all that history and some new discoveries as well that will need to be followed up. Its part of the continuum and it may just be the best thing we've done...until the next one."

Produced by Jim Scott (Wilco), Intriguer once again brings together singer/guitarist and chief songwriter Neil Finn with original Crowded House bassist Nick Seymour and keyboardist/guitarist Mark Hart, who'd been with the band from 1989 until its last days. Also on board is drummer Matt Sherrod, the relative newcomer to the family, having joined the band for the making of Time On Earth. Recorded at Roundhead Studios in Auckland, New Zealand, in the spring and summer of 2009, the album includes songs that "have been worked over on the road and transformed a few times, some all the way back to square one," says Finn. "It's a good place to return to from time to time."

    hoping they revise the schedule to come here to Cleveland.

  • Matt

    I'm not incredibly optimistic that that will happen, since they never made
    it here on the last round of touring for Time on Earth. We've got tickets
    for the Chicago date.
