CRAIG FINN - ALL THESE PERFECT CROSSES VINYL (LTD. ED. RECORD STORE DAY 2LP)
LIMITED EDITION RECORD STORE DAY 2LP VINYL
Release Date: 29th August 2020
Limited edition Record Store Day 2020 pressing of only 750. The frontman of The Hold Steady, Craig Finn, has been making a name for himself as a solo artist for a while now with a string of superb releases. All These Perfect Crosses is a collection of tracks from the sessions which brought us 'Faith In The Future’ (2015), 'We All Want The Same Things’ (2017), and 'I Need A New War’ (2019), but for one reason or another, never make it on their respective records. But such is the quality of Finn’s writing, all these tracks speak for themselves and could have easily been included on each record. Perfect!

"Craig Finn’s ‘All These Perfect Crosses’ is a Record Store Day exclusive LP, released via Partisan Records on Record Store Day (18 April 2020). It is a collection of songs that came from the sessions related to 'Faith In The Future’ (2015), 'We All Want The Same Things’ (2017), and 'I Need A New War’ (2019). For Craig Finn, these three records feel like one big body of work, and the songs on this collection are a part of that piece. For various reasons, these songs didn’t appear on the records they were recorded with, but they still tell a part of the same story—modern people trying to make it through, to keep their heads above water, to live past their mistakes, to survive. Craig is best known as the frontman of The Hold Steady, however he is also a skilled songwriter in his own right. 2019’s ‘I Need A New War’ solidified Craig as one of today’s most important storytellers, among the ranks of Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits."
