Now, with album sales approaching two million units (more than 26-times platinum), and with 16 top fifty singles and five #1 albums in Australia to date, that love affair continues unabated. Opening for Crowded House will be Kirin J Callinan. Not afraid to push the limits he makes exhilarating, genre-bending music delivered with both flamboyance and a serrated edge. The Crowded House 30-year celebration will also herald an unprecedented re-issue program spanning their entire career, unlocking a wealth of rare material. Each of Crowded House’s six studio albums – Crowded House, Temple Of Low Men, Woodface, Together Alone, Time on Earth, Intriguer plus 1999’s rarities album Afterglow, will be released as deluxe editions on Friday, November 4. Each body of work will be expanded to include previously unreleased studio recordings, home demos, live tracks, b-sides and other rarities. In physical format, each album will contain a 36-page book showcasing unseen photos, new interview transcripts with Neil Finn and Nick Seymour, liner notes from esteemed album producers and journalists, alongside insights from the creator of the benchmark setting cover art for each album; Nick Seymour. Each album will also be made available on 180-gram vinyl; back on the format for the first time in many years. The Deluxe editions and vinyl are available to pre-order now at CrowdedHouse.com.
