Crowded House frontman and more recently the latest recruit to Fleetwood Mac, Neil Finn’s pedigree is beyond reproach and his reputation as one of the finest songwriters of his generation well earned.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfgfxFbqfcg&w=560&h=315]
This new single ups the ante in sublime, it’s swooningly elegant and aching beauty seeing Mac bandmates Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie join him in something that fills the senses with wonder and delight.
Every word and every note is perfectly placed and his grasp of the power of melody and song match the heights of the masters like Lennon and McCartney. Gloriously warm and tender, this wraps you in the biggest of hugs and brings a peace that will make you glow.
