New Zealand’s Crowded House, who released a slew of successful albums and songs in the 1980s and 1990s (including 1986’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over,” which hit #2 on the Billboard Hot 100), have returned with their first new song in 10 years, “Whatever You Want.” It is accompanied by a music video starring, of all people, Mac DeMarco. Watch it below.

Crowded House’s last album was 2010’s Intriguer. Since then, frontman Neil Finn has released various albums, including 2018’s Light Sleeper, which was a collaborative album with his son, Liam Finn, who is now also in Crowded House. The elder Finn was also a touring member of Fleetwood Mac for a while.

Crowded House’s current lineup also features founding member Nick Seymour (bass) along with producer and keyboardist Mitchell Froom and drummer Elroy Finn. Nina Ljeti directed the “Whatever You Want” video, in which DeMarco tries to piece together the events of a wild party the night before, aided by inanimate objects that talk to him.

The band have also announced some 2021 New Zealand tour dates. Find those here.
