Neil Finn Taps Faris And Dayton To Helm New Video

Former Crowded House frontman Neil Finn has tapped revered music video directors Valerie Faris and Johnathan Dayton to film the video for “She Will Have Her Way,” the first single off Finn’s upcoming new album, “Try Whistling This,” which arrives in stores on June 16.

Faris and Dayton will be shooting the clip with Finn this weekend in Simi Valley, California. The husband-wife team has directed such award-winning clips as “Tonight, Tonight” [1.3MB QuickTime] for the Smashing Pumpkins and their handiwork can be currently seen in Scott Weiland’s video for “Barbarella.”

Finn, the voice behind such Crowded House classics as “Don’t Dream It’s Over” and “Something So Strong,” worked on his solo debut over the course of the last two years, enlisting help of Midnight Oil guitarist Jim Moginie and Soul Coughing bassist Sebastian Steinberg, and recording in studios from New York to his home studio in Auckland, New Zealand.
