Craig Finn

I Need A New War

Partisan Records

Released: 26th April 2019



Craig Finn releases his third solo record on Partisan Records
(and his fourth solo record overall), ‘I Need A New War’.  Craig is best known as the frontman of The Hold Steady but he is also a skilled songwriter in his own right. ‘I Need A New War’ is the third album in a trilogy (following 2015’s ‘Faith In The
Future’ and 2017’s ‘We All Want The Same Things’). The album focuses on regular people trying to respond to extraordinary times, attempting to find connection while
wondering how to keep pace with a world moving faster than they are. It solidifies Craig as one of today’s most important storytellers, among the ranks of Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits.
