Craig Finn, ‘New Friend Jesus’

Back in November, we got our first taste off the debut LP from the Hold Steady’s Craig Finn in the form the promising cut “Honolulu Blues.” Now, just two weeks beforeĀ Clear Heart Full Eyes arrives in full, we have another glimpse at the literary bar-rocker’s solo project: “New Friend Jesus” arrived this week, complete with a shuffling, country/rock-driven backup band and some familiarly narrative lyrics from the Brooklyn-by-way-of-Minnesota songwriter.

Without further ado, you can pre-order the forthcoming set here and give the latest cut a spin thataway.
