The Rubens, Matt Corby, Eddie Vedder Pay Tribute To Hunters & Collectors

The Rubens, Matt Corby and Eddie Vedder with Neil Finn are just some of the artists who have recorded their own versions of Hunters & Collectors classics for a tribute album.

‘Crucible – The Songs of Hunters & Collectors’, also features Australia’s new breed artists Alpine, Husky and Cloud Control.

Hunters & Collectors frontman Mark Swymour says he is honoured by the tribute to his former band. “I have to say, it is deeply rewarding for me as a writer to know that beyond the years and all the hard work that was done in the crucible of the Australian suburbs, the songs of Hunters & Collectors have reached the cream of Australia’s talent, great singers and bands young and older… who have stepped up to record the best of what we delivered in those pubs so many years ago. I am honoured by the respect they have shown,” he said in a statement.

‘Crucible – The Songs of Hunters & Collectors’ will be released through Michael Gudinski’s Liberation Music. “I, along with the cream of great musicians from all around this country and beyond have been given a wonderful opportunity to come together and pay our respects. And what an utterly amazing legacy it is, revisited and reinterpreted by their admirers more than 30 years from where it began and for the generations of music fans that will follow,” he said.

Liberation will release ‘Crucible – The Songs of Hunters & Collectors’ on September 27.
