Eddie Vedder and Neil Finn Team Up For Hunters & Collectors Cover
The track is the second song released from the forthcoming 'Crucible - The Songs of Hunters & Collectors' album which was curated by fan, critic, and A&R executive John O'Donnell.
Both Vedder and Finn have performed "Throw Your Arms Around Me" live in concert in the past and teamed up for a "stripped back" version of the track in tribute to the legendary Australian group. Check it out here.
"Crucible - The Songs Of Hunters & Collectors" will feature 30 tracks in full, including 15 tributes and 15 original recordings and will be released on September 27th by Liberation Music in Australia.
Curator O'Donnel had this to say, "It has been an exhilarating journey of reinvention and rediscovery," says O'Donnell, "as a wildly diverse range of artists have stepped forward with passion and creative zeal to record interpretations of fourteen equally diverse Hunters songs. From the more obscure corners of the band's catalogue such as 'Alligator Engine', 'The Slab (Betty's Worry)', 'Dog' through to the classics like 'Throw Your Arms Around Me', 'Holy Grail' and 'When the River Runs Dry', established artists like Eddie Vedder & Neil Finn, Paul Kelly, The Living End and Something For Kate have paid respect while newer acts like The Rubens, Alpine, Matt Corby and Abbe May have gone digging for their own truths in these amazing songs."
