New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Fink's Sunday Night Blues Club, Vol. 1 is the first purely blues musical output from Fin Greenall. Produced and mixed by Fink and Flood (U2, PJ Harvey, Warpaint), this side project was recorded in Greenall's Berlin studio prior to embarking on the eagerly anticipated new Fink studio album due for release later this year. Last night, he released the next song from the album series titled "Keep Myself Alone Now."
With each track being recorded fast, live, using one vintage mic, and one vintage amp, Greenall says, "Most of this record is one take, from all of the guys who helped me get there...New Orleans legend David
Shirley on drums and the weird and wonderful Colin Stetson also really brought the heat to the table."
KCRW called the album "lovely" and stated "Fink has a knack for creating infectious songs, as well as pushing digital boundaries."
"My love of Blues has always been there, before I even knew what it was. Records by John Lee Hooker, T-Bone Walker and Chuck Berry
really spoke to me. For two springs, in 2015 and 2016, I immersed myself in the blues, scouring record stores whilst on tour to inspire and educate myself…to do something raw, rough, and live, a record that just was, for its own sake. You'd think that writing blues was easy - but it isn't...It's easy to copy, sure, and to cover, definitely, but to write original blues that is more than just a photocopy of the past actually turned out to be equally challenging and natural...".
The album artwork and packaging have been designed by Sven (Editor of legendary skate mag Lodown Magazine, Berlin) and Sacha at Brand
New History, with photography and film captured and directed by long-term Fink collaborators Tommy N Lance.
Listen to the new songs added each week on Fink's Sunday Night Blues Club official Spotify playlist.
The album's release will be followed by a very limited run of live shows in Europe.
