Tour Information
Now one-fifth of the global phenomenon that is Crowded House, Aotearoa New Zealand's Liam Finn has announced a thrilling new solo project named Liam Finn’s Hyperverse — daring us all to join him on the journey towards his long-awaited fourth studio album.

Finn is kicking off an innovative online streaming series, offering an intimate ringside view of his songwriting and recording process as the new album takes shape in real time, going live on Twitch twice per week from 14th June onwards. The Liam Finn’s Hyperverse series will conclude with three limited capacity events happening at Tāmaki Makaurau Aucklands Roundhead Studios from August 11th to 13th — where Finn will perform his freshly composed music for the first time ever while tracking it onto two-inch tape (with no digital safety net), to a live studio audience including members of the general public. Nearly the entirety of Finn’s writing and recording process for the album will be witnessed by audiences online and in-studio, an audacious and potentially vulnerable move for any artist.

Channeling the electrifying live energy of his one-man-band show which launched his solo career (with indelible performances on Late Show With David Letterman and Later... With Jools Holland), Finn will be embracing the unknown, letting the improvisational magic flow and cooking up a bold new collection of tunes, created from recordings laid down over the upcoming eight weeks. Viewers will have first look at early versions of new songs, on-the-spot musical discoveries and sure-to-be top tier banter — direct from the mind that gave us his classic solo albums The Nihilist (2014), FOMO (2011) and Ill Be Lightning (2007). Expect the unexpected from the ever-questing songwriter & producer: tune in to the inaugural stream at on Monday 14th June.

There has always been a transformation that happens to me onstage, and a palpable chaotic synergy between myself and an audience that feeds it. This feeling has always been elusive to capture while writing a song in my bedroom, or recording in a studio and I’m excited to explore the possibilities with this project. — Liam Finn
