Craig Finn

A Legacy of Rentals

LP Pre-order

Expected 5th August 2022

Most recently dispatched: 18 May

The new full length album from the excellent Craig Finn! - known well for fronting The Hold Steady, Craig's solo work sees his detailed and intricate storytelling at the forefront. Following on from 2019's 'I Need A New War' and the RSD20-released compilation 'All The These Perfect Crosses'.

Best known as the singer of the Hold Steady, Craig Finn is a Minnesota-bred singer, songwriter, and guitarist based out of New York City. Combining literary influences like Jack Kerouac and John Berryman with the musical influences of Bruce Springsteen and fellow Minnesotan Paul Westerberg, Finn's highly descriptive lyrical style has a strong focus on narrative, crafting whole worlds for the people in his songs to exist within.

'A Legacy of Rental's', the 6th solo record from Finn, was produced by Josh Kaufman and recorded by D. James Goodwin at The Clubhouse recording studio. Compared to past solo releases, this new collection was recorded with the help of a 14-piece string section including violins, violas and cellos, instead of the usually horn-heavy sounds that Craig and The Hold Steady are known for. The themes of the record explore memory -- how we remember our loved ones, the places in our lives that have changed, and recent events that are part of our pasts.
