The long-awaited Dizzy Heights is his first solo studio album since 2001's One Nil. Finn recorded the album at his own Roundhead Studio in Auckland and in Upstate New York. It was co-produced with Dave Fridmann (MGMT, Tame Impala, the Flaming Lips). "I didn't want to make it a solo record in a stripped back singer-songwriter sort of way," Finn says. "I had a feeling Dave would be good at adding some odd shapes to the music, which I always welcome - making things a little more expansive. He is good at subverting things, and making things sound a bit messed up and not as obvious, rather than being too tasteful, which is always a temptation."
