Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder and Crowded House singer Neil Finn are giving us a preview of their recent collaboration for Crucible: The Songs of Hunters & Collectors , a new album paying homage to Hunters & Collectors . The duo tackled a cover of the veteran Australian rock group’s “Throw Your Arms Around Me” for the release, which can be streamed on SoundCloud .
Crucible: The Songs of Hunters & Collectors boasts 15 tracks and features a number of rockers performing their interpretations of songs by Hunters & Collectors. The record is set to hit stores on September 27 through Liberation Music, a division of Michael Gudinski ’s Mushroom Group.
“I, along with the cream of great musicians from all around this country and beyond, have been given a wonderful opportunity to come together and pay our respects,” says Gudinski in a statement . “And what an utterly amazing legacy it is, revisited and reinterpreted by their admirers more than 30 years from where it began and for the generations of music fans that will follow.”
