Due: 31 May

Following on from the release of their latest single ‘Oh Hi’, ARIA Hall of Fame luminaries Crowded House have just announced their eighth studio album Gravity Stairs – out Friday, May 31 via BMG.

It’s the act of climbing those figurative “gravity stairs, “inspired by a heavy stone staircase near where Finn vacations, that he likens to his mindset as a creator. “It’s a metaphor for getting a little older and becoming aware of your own mortality, your own physicality, “Finn says. “Things are getting a little harder, and there’s more determination needed to get to the top, but there’s still the same compulsion to climb them.
