His new album ‘This Wild WIlling’ will also be out April 12th via Anti-Records.

Glen Hansard has revealed the video for lead single ‘I’ll Be You, Be Me’ from ‘This Wild Willing’, his fourth full-length album.

The album is, according to PR, said to ‘Marry the sonic inventiveness of the best of his work in The Frames with the discipline he’s found as a songwriter and lyricist in his solo career.’

Craig Finn announces new solo album ‘I Need A New War’

News

‘I Need A New War’ is to be released April 26 with Partisan Records.

Partisan Records have announced the release of Craig Finn ’s new album, ‘I Need A New War’ arriving Friday, April 26th.

Finn’s fourth solo LP is the third part of a trilogy after 2015’s Faith in the Future and 2017’s ‘We All Want The Same Things’.

It was recorded throughout 2018 in New York, his home for the last 18 years and the focus of the album.

“Going in, I saw this record as the third part of a trilogy,” says Finn. “Thematically, this was the third group of songs that I had written about smaller moments – people trying to stay afloat in modern times, attempting to find connection, achieving tiny triumphs and frustrating let downs in their day to day lives.”

Perhaps best known as the singer of The Hold Steady, Craig Finn had five critically acclaimed albums with the band, with 2012 seeing his first solo album, ‘Clear Heart Full Eyes’.
