New Zealand Music News


Liam Finn last released a solo album in 2014 when he dropped The Nihilist. He is set to change that in 2021, with an innovative project that sees him recording the album live in front of an audience.


The news is written by a mysterious person. Maybe Wendy Broccoli.

Liam Finn's new project, called Liam Finn's Hyperverse, will be streamed live from beginning to end, before being tracked live in front of an audience. Whoa! To explain the idea, who better than the man himself:

You can tune in here on Twitch to watch Liam's songwriting process in action each Monday (12pm NZT) and Thursday (8.30pm NZT), or on demand, for the next two months. If you'd like to attend the shows at Roundhead Studios, you can buy tickets here from Under The Radar.

Press Release

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.

From June 14th Finn kicks 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, live on Twitch twice per week. The Liam Finn’s Hyperverse series will conclude with three limited capacity events at Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland's Roundhead Studios from August 11th to 13th — where Finn will perform his freshly composed music for the first time while tracking it onto two-inch tape (with no digital safety net), to a live studio audience that includes members of the public. In an audacious, unprecedented, and vulnerable move Finn’s writing and recording process for the album is set to be witnessed by audiences online and in-studio, Liam Finn’s Hyperverse is not to be missed.

Channeling the electrifying live energy of his one-man-band show that 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. 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 I'll Be Lightning (2007). Expect the unexpected from the ever-questing songwriter & producer: tune in to Liam Finn’s Hyperverse at from Monday 14th June.
