Another cover has dropped from the Eskimo Joe lads in the leadup to their massive 2022 Black Fingernails Red Wine In The City tour which kicks off in 5 weeks.
A note below from Joel Quartermain from Eskimo Joe:
'How fortunate are we to have Crowded House soundtrack our lives? They’re like your favourite family member: warm, charismatic and loved by everyone.
It’s such a tough decision to choose a Crowdies tune to cover. So many iconic, sublime songs.
We ended up settling on ‘Into Temptation’ as possibly a less obvious choice compared to some of their more well known masterpieces. It’s definitely a favourite in the Eskies tour bus!
It’s one of many examples of Neil Finn’s gift for writing complex, sophisticated songs that sound absolutely effortless.
NB: To our NZ friends, we’re going to claim Crowded House as an Aussie band on the pure geographic/statistical argument that the band was formed in Melbourne and 2 of 3 founding members were Melbournites. Hope that’s ok :)
The track will be released on all platforms tomorrow! You can pre-save it via the link below: https://ditto.fm/eskimojoe-intotemptation
Can’t wait for our big national tour to kick off in 5 weeks, tickets available from https://www.frontiertouring.com/eskimojoe
Both the Black Fingernails Red Wine & Song Is A City albums will be performed in full along with some other gems.
Best wishes, Joel'
