Craig Finn (The Hold Steady) Prepares Debut Single

    Craig Finn’s certainly keeping busy: the frontman of bar-rock heroes the Hold Steady is getting ready to release his first solo album early next year, and he’s also giving excited listeners a preview in the form of an upcoming single. “Honolulu Blues” and its B-side “Rented Room” are being issued by Vagrant Records, with a limited-edition 7″ vinyl dropping in time for Black Friday on Nov. 25 and a digital release a few days later on Nov. 29. It’s pretty clear that Finn isn’t “stuck between stations” when it comes to writing new material. [CoS]
