Legendary Australian outfit Hunters & Collectors are the subject of a new star-studded tribute album. Due out September 27th via Liberation Music, Crucible: The Songs of Hunters & Collectors includes a new remix by The Avalanches, along with a long-desired studio cover of “Talking to a Stranger” by Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder and Crowded House’s Neil Finn. Both men have covered the song on several occasions over the years; in fact, Vedder first learned of the song through Crowded House’s version. Together, they’ve delivered a gorgeous acoustic rendition, which you can hear below (via SPIN).
