Three weeks ago, we launched the inaugural Slicing Up Eyeballs Readers Poll in an effort to gauge what this site’s frequenters think are the year’s best new albums and reissues. Now, with hundreds of ballots cast, the results are in.
Capitol/EMI today announced it will release ‘The Very Very Best of Crowded House,’ a new greatest-hits package, on Oct. 26 as both a 19-track CD and download and as an expanded 32-track digital-only collection.
As Crowded House nears the end of its U.S. tour, the band this week released an official music video for ‘Either Side of the World,’ the second single off this summer’s ‘Intriguer.’
With their North American tour now underway, Crowded House stopped by ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ last night to plug their new album ‘Intriguer’ with a performance of that disc’s ‘Twice If You’re Lucky.’
This week’s new releases include expanded reissues from R.E.M. (‘Fables of the Reconstruction’), Concrete Blonde (‘Bloodletting’), The Teardrop Explodes (‘Kilimanjaro’) and That Petrol Emotion (‘Babble’), plus a new compilation from My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult (‘Sinister Whisperz’) and the belated U.S. release of Crowded House’s new album ‘Intriguer.’
Given today’s release of ‘Intriguer’ in the U.K., it seems fitting to post this sweet clip: Crowded House and the venerable Johnny Marr covering the David Bowie classic ‘Moonage Daydream’ during the encore of the band’s May 27 concert in Manchester.
This week’s new releases include the U.K. edition of ‘Intriguer,’ Crowded House’s second post-reunion album; ‘Something for Everybody,’ Devo’s first new album in 20 years; ‘Close-Up Vol. 1: Love Songs,’ a disc of Suzanne Vega re-recordings; and the reissue of The Dream Syndicate’s ‘Medicine Show.’
With the release of its second post-reunion album, ‘Intriguer,’ approaching, Crowded House has released an official video for the record’s opening track and first single, ‘Saturday Sun.’
The second post-reunion album from Crowded House — dubbed ‘Intriguer’ — will be released this June under the band’s new deal with Universal Music, and will be followed by a lengthy, 28-date tour of North America beginning in July.
