Craig Finn shares first song from new album

WE ALL WANT THE SAME THINGS is the eagerly awaited third album from Craig Finn and arrives via Partisan Records on Friday, March 24th.

Finn’s third solo release, WE ALL WANT THE SAME THINGS will be available for pre-order at all leading DSPs beginning today, January 10th. All pre-orders receive an instant download of the album’s powerful first single, “Preludes,” that premiered yesterday, January 9th exclusively via NPR Music. The album will be also be available via Pledge Music with exclusive merch. Anyone who pre-orders through Pledge will receive an exclusive four-digital track EP.

“‘Preludes’ is what I remember 1994 being like,” Finn says, “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 also a feeling of wonder in being out of step and alone. This is the song on the album that is closest to being autobiographical, but I think it fits with these other character studies in that I was trying to figure out my place in a world that didn’t seem to have a lot of room for me.”

Finn will herald his new album with a very special living room tour, “We All Want The Same Things: An Evening of Music and Conversation with Craig Finn.” Presented in conjunction with Undertow Music Collective, the trek begins tomorrow, January 11th, in Kingston, NY and then visits 11 cities across the country, finishing Saturday, January 21 in Baltimore. Venues will be unveiled to ticket buyers upon purchase. Most dates are sold out – for complete details and remaining ticket availability, please see

Finn and his band The Uptown Controllers will then travel to North America as special guests on Japandroids’ upcoming headline tour, getting underway Monday, February 13th at Madison, WI’s Majestic Theatre and then continuing through late March.
