Singer-songwriter Craig Finn will issue a new solo album We All Want The Same Things through Partisan Records. Today, The Hold Steady frontman issued the first single from his third solo LP, the track “Preludes.”
Premiered by NPR Music, Finn sent the outlet a lengthy message detailing the process that went into recording We All Want The Same Things. Finn partnered with many of the same people who he worked with on his 2015 solo album, such as drummer Joe Russo, engineer Dan Goodwin and producer Josh Kaufman, along with a host of other contributors.
Here’s what Finn told NPR about the single “Preludes”:
As for “Preludes,” this was what I remember 1994 being like, coming back to the Twin Cities after being away for college. It’s a time in my life that I felt most adrift, but there was a also a feeling of wonder in being out of step and alone. This is the song that is closest to being autobiographical, but I think it fits with these other character studies. I was trying to figure out my place in a world that didn’t seem to have a lot of room for me.
