The Sun Came Out


In 2001 Neil Finn, lead singer and founder of the popular band Crowded House gathered some of music's most prolific artists together for some charity concerts in Auckland, New Zealand.Included were, Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, Johnny Marr of The Smiths, Phil Selway and Ed O'Brien from Radiohead, Sebastian Steinberg of Soul Coughing and Lisa Germano. They staged three amazing concerts under the moniker 7 Worlds Collide and it was a huge success.

Now seven years later at Piha on the wild west coast of Auckland, Neil has done it again and this time has invited Wilco and KT Tunstall to the line-up In addition to three concerts, they recorded a double album of new songs in just three weeks. Go behind the scenes and watch as these amazing artists conceive, write, tweak, record and perform these songs. Experience their creative process and their camaraderie as they work together for a bigger purpose, to raise money for Oxfam.

THE SUN CAME OUT is an inspiring, very intimate look at some of the best musicians in the world gathering in a place of spectacular beauty to record all new songs with a strict time limit, no real plan but enough goodwill to do it all for charity.
