Third Solo Effort from The Hold Steady Frontman!

We All Want The Same Things sees Craig Finn exploring themes of love and partnership in the modern world, as ever expressed via finely etched character studies, black humor, and smartly arranged rock ‘n' roll. Largely recorded in the spring of 2016 at The Clubhouse in Rhinebeck, NY with frequent collaborator Josh Kaufman producing and Dan Goodwin engineering and mixing, the album features musical contributions from drummer Joe Russo, keyboardist Sam Kassirer, Rainer Maria vocalist Caithlin De Marrais, singer/songwriter Annie Nero, horn master Stuart Bogie, Jon Shaw, Jordan McLean, Matt Barrick and Finn's longtime partner in The Hold Steady, guitarist Tad Kubler.

"We named this collection We All Want The Same Things after a line in the song ‘God in Chicago,'" Finn says. "It seems like a bit of dark humor in these turbulent political times, but it also rings true: no matter our differences we all have some very basic wants and needs that line up with each other. The characters in these songs are normal people trying to help themselves, trying to move forward, and in some cases trying just to survive. All the while they are negotiating what space the others in their lives can occupy."

The NY Times has described Finn as "a poetic storyteller and portraitist of people adrift and clawing their way forward in a depressed American landscape," and that's certainly the case here. His most melodic album to date, We All Want The Same Things follows the singer/songwriter's two previous solo efforts, 2012's Clear Heart Full Eyes and 2015's Faith In The Future, the critically acclaimed latter work awarded four stars by Rolling Stone.
