Engelbert Humperdinck has teamed with the former members of Midnight Oil, Violent Femmes and Hunters & Collectors for the second The Break album.

Space Farm is the name of The Break's new album, to be released through Sony Music next week.

The Break and Violent Femmes bass player Brian Ritchie met Humperdinck during his last Australian tour in Melbourne. They struck up a friendship and Humperdinck thought it would be cool to re-record one of his old songs with The Break.

Ritchie suggested they do a new version of Ten Guitars, an old B-side from 1967 of Humperdinck's classic Release Me. The song has become somewhat of an unofficial national anthem for New Zealand.

The Break recorded the instrumental of the track and sent it to Engelbert to record his vocals back home in the US.

The Break is Rob Hirst (Drums - Midnight Oil), Jim Moginie (Guitar, Theramin, Keys, Producer - Midnight Oil), Martin Rotsey (Guitar - Midnight Oil), Brian Ritchie (Bass - Violent Femmes) and Jack Howard (Trumpet - Hunters & Collectors).
