In 2001 Neil Finn, lead singer and member of the popular band, Crowded House, gathered together some of music’s most prolific artists for a charity concert. Included were, Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, Johnny Marr of The Smiths, Phil Selway and Ed O’Brien from Radiohead, Sebastian Steinberg of Soul Coffin and Lisa Germano. They staged three amazing concerts under the moniker 7 Worlds Collide and it was a huge success.
Now seven years later, in New Zealand on the west coast of Auckland, Neil has done it again and this time he invited, KT Tunstall and Wilco to the line-up. In addition to the three concerts, they recorded an 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.
