Iconic band Crowded House reveal their brand-new single “Playing With Fire”.

The pop-rock anthem is the latest release from the band’s forthcoming seventh-studio album, Dreamers Are Waiting, out on June 4th, 2021 via EMI Music Australia. ‘Playing With Fire’ is accompanied by a Simon Mark Brown directed visual, which features a full-band performance set within a dream-like sequence.

“This song was formed out of a Crowded House jam, live in the studio but then evolved its character through many twists and turns during quarantine in 2020. ‘Playing With Fire’ carries within it the contradiction I often feel on joyous occasions, the presence of hope together with an impending sense of doom,” said Neil Finn.

Since having just completed a hugely successful tour of New Zealand earlier this year, Crowded House has continued to usher in a series of new music, including their recent single ‘To The Island,’ along with two remixed versions of the track – Both the Tame Impala and Unknown Mortal Orchestra remixes are set to appear on an upcoming 7’’ vinyl via the band’s D2c store, available for pre-order.

Crowded House is Neil Finn, Nick Seymour, Mitchell Froom, Liam Finn and Elroy Finn.
