Crowded House singer says ‘I’m happy to see them enjoying it so much’
Crowded House singer Neil Finn has given his approval to Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande’s cover of his band’s 1986 hit ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’.
Grande and Cyrus performed their version while dressed in animal onesies, posting a video of the performance on Facebook to raise awareness of Cyrus’ new homeless youth charity The Happy Hippie Foundation.

Finn told Billboard: “What a life that song has had. I’m happy to see them enjoying it so much, and I hope it inspires some donations to a good cause.”
Cyrus also performed at New York’s Terminal 5 on Tuesday to promote her charity, where she previewed new song ‘Tiger Dreams’ with The Flaming Lips from their forthcoming collaborative album.
Crowded House reformed in 2006 after a 10-year split and Finn added that he is writing songs for their third album since reuniting. He has also produced New Zealand singer Jesse Sheehan’s forthcoming album. Sheehan plays at The Great Escape today (May 15) .
