Today, May 31, is the release of Gravity kickingthe eighth full-length album from the long-running Australian rock band Busy house.

The record was first announced a few months ago with the debut of “OH HI”:

Gravity kicking is the sequel to that of 2021 Dreamers wait, and includes the band’s current lineup Neil Finn, Nick Seymour, Mitchell Froom, Elroy Finn and Liam Finn.

More context, per press release:

The album, produced by the band with Steven Schram, features Crowded House in its current incarnation – Finn, Nick Seymour, Mitchell Froom and Finn’s sons Elroy and Liam – as sharp as ever, feeling musically adventurous and still capable of reaching the dizzying highs reach. that have made them an international favorite. It’s climbing those figurative “gravity stairs,” inspired by a heavy stone staircase near where Finn goes on vacation, that he likens to his own mindset as a creator.

“It’s a metaphor for growing older and becoming aware of your own mortality, your own physicality,” says Finn. “It gets a little harder and takes more determination to reach the top, but there is still the same drive to climb them.”
