As part of the Music From The Home Front charity concert last weekend, Crowded House came together for the first time since 2016, to perform their 1986 hit anthem 'Don't Dream It's Over.'

The lineup included co-founding members Neil Finn and Nick Seymour, who were joined by Mitchell Froom, Liam Finn and Elroy Finn.

In a note accompanying the video, Neil explained how they recorded the performance.

"On the occasion of the 33rd anniversary of Crowded House reaching #2 on the American charts I'd like to post this video of us performing individually from home a version of 'Don't Dream It's Over,'" he wrote.

"We recorded it over a few hours between continents day before [Saturday]. It was for the Music From the Home Front benefit concert in Australia / NZ.

"I really like the way it sounds and the process of flying tapes back and forth was fun…pure and simple… hope you enjoy too."

Music From The Home Front raised funds to help COVID-19 relief efforts in Australia and New Zealand.

Proceeds from the concert went towards Support Act in Australia and Music Helps Live in New Zealand.
