The band release Australian and American tour dates as well as new track "From a Friend to a Friend".

Crowded House leader Neil Finn has formed a new band, Pajama Club, with his wife Sharon. Pajama Club also includes Anna Skyring, ex-the Grates, and Sean Donnelly.


The band have not yet made any announcements regarding an album, but they have released the track “From a Friend to a Friend”. With Sharon on lead vocals, it has a garagey, almost Sonic Youth-type vibe. You can download it free if you sign up for the official Pajama Club mailing list.


Also, Pajama Club will be playing in Australia and the US over the summer. Dates after the jump.
