Craig Finn

Dine Alone welcomes Craig Finn

Dine Alone Records is excited to announce the September 11 release of the highly anticipated sophomore solo album from Craig Finn titled Faith In The Future. Josh Kaufman produced the record in the cozy, rustic confines of Woodstock’s The Isokon recording studio and helped Finn stretch the boundaries of his songwriting with confidence, invention and ambition to realize what is shaping up to be a defining moment in Finn’s vast musical career which includes his work as the frontman of The Hold Steady.

At times stark and spare, at other times vibrant and dynamic, Faith in the Future is Finn’s most compelling collection thus far, each song a powerfully alluring and subtly nuanced composition wedded to his distinctive short story narratives. Much of the material on Faith in the Future was written after the passing of Finn’s mother, and while none of the songs directly address that loss, the themes of perseverance and finding redemption can be found throughout the album.

“I had both the music and lyrics to these songs, though they changed a great deal in the studio,” Finn explains. “There’s a grandness to The Hold Steady that tends to make me write about bigger, more dramatic themes. Some of these songs are more mundane, with minor slices of life that wouldn’t best be supported by the hugeness of a rock group. It wasn’t always about what we wanted to put in, but what should we leave out? We didn’t want to sermonize or moralize. Just let these songs, and characters, be.”

Finn will be hitting the road in October for a U.S. tour that includes 2 performances in N.Y. at The Bowery Ballroom, and at Beacon Theatre with My Morning Jacket, as well as a Canadian date in Toronto at The Horseshoe Tavern on October 17. 2015.
