Eddie Vedder & Neil Finn – “Throw Your Arms Around Me” (Hunters & Collectors Cover)
If you’ve never heard of Hunters & Collectors, an Australian rock band from the ’80s, don’t feel too bad; I never had either until very recently. But the new Hunters & Collectors tribute album Crucible has some truly impressive contributors, so apparently these guys had some important admirers. We’ve already posted the Avalanches’ remix of the Hunters & Collectors song “Talking To A Stranger.” And now Eddie Vedder has teamed up with Crowded House frontman Neil Finn to contribute a warm, heartfelt, intense acoustic cover of the 1984 ballad “Throw Your Arms Around Me.” The new version of the song is absolutely gorgeous, and you can hear it below.
Crucible: The Songs Of Hunters & Collectors is out 9/27 on Liberation Music.
