Split Enz ‘True Colours’ Reimagined

Split Enz classic ‘True Colours’ has been given a make-over with a tribute version on the way with covers of songs from the album by Lime Cordiale, Busby Marou, Bernard Fanning, Stan Walker and Shihad, to name a few.

Enz founder Tim Finn loves the project. He said, “True Colours, New Colours features an eclectic group of artists who bring eccentricity and swagger to these tunes. Curated in a singular manner which eschews the obvious and turns up the attitude. Love it!”

The first taste of the album is Shihad performing the number one Enz song ‘I Got You’.

Jon Toogood from Shihad also adding “As a kid Split Enz made me believe that you could be from NZ and still conquer the world if you made great music. We were honored to have been asked to do one of our favourite Split Enz tracks ‘I Got You’ for the upcoming tribute album – True Colours, New Colours – The Songs of Split Enz. This track was a big part of the soundtrack of our childhoods and is an absolute banger. We basically kept pretty true to the original (it being so good and all) but just made it apocalyptically heavy which we thought would be apt for the times we seem to be living through at the moment. It has been designed to be played as loud as humanly possible so do that when you get a chance.”
