The Hold Steady @ Beekman Beer Garden – BV Presents (more by Amanda Hatfield)

Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn is set to release a solo album titled Clear Heart Full Eyes on January 24th via Vagrant Records. The album was recorded earlier this year in Austin, TX by Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Trail of Dead), and features contributions from members of White Denim, The Heartless Bastards, Phosphorescent, and Centro-Matic.

Clear Eyes Full Heart‘s lead single “Honolulu Blues” will be released as a 7″ for Record Store Day’s “Black Friday” sale on November 25th. Paired with new b-side “Rented Room,” the two songs will also be available digitally starting on the 29th. Stream “Honolulu Blues” via a widget below.

In the beginning of February, Finn will hit the road for a number of dates with Mount Moriah. They’ll reach Chicago’s Empty Bottle on February 7th. Tickets go on sale this Friday (11/18), at noon CST.
