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.
     Craig’s most comprehensive UK / EU touring plot to date includes February 2019 19 date UK / EU tour supporting Brian Fallon.
     ”As with most of Finn’s solo records... its storytelling is just as sharp and squalid and granular as ever.” - Stereogum
     “Noir-story mode… expansive new sound textures.” - Rolling Stone
     “... a step into a new sound - more produced, less troubadour, though retaining his signature storytelling style and knack for a disarming refrain” - The i
