Craig Finn has never been an artist short of work. With a new run of dates that cover much of Europe and a broad section of the U.S., it shouldn’t be a surprise that he’s taking off with a new song in tow. While “It’s Never Been A Fair Fight” doesn’t sound like someone else, Finn has the song out with an acoustic B-Side and a live video of it as well.
With horns blazing and a beat that holds your attention, Finn talk-sings the words like a true poet. Pedal steel, an acoustic and various percussive instruments play before backing vocals help lift the track up. Finn has a renewed weight here, as the song shows how hefty he can get. It offers plenty of uplifting notes with a pace that’s happy-go-lucky in how it plays out.
The song is available to stream on all streaming sites, it can be purchased in all digital outlets or you can grab his latest full length I Need A New War from Partisan Records. Craig Finn will be on tour beginning October 11 in Bristol, UK at Exchange until November 24 in Jacksonville, FL at Institution Ale Works. His tour schedule for all of his upcoming appearances is located here.
