THE BLUES-INFUSED ALBUM CONTAINS 8 BRAND NEW TRACKS INCLUDING LEAD SINGLE ‘BONEYARD’
FINK WILL BE PERFORMING THE ALBUM LIVE AT LONDON’S JAZZ CAFÉ ON MAY 2ND
Fink’s brand new album, ‘Fink’s Sunday Night Blues Club, Vol. 1’ is out now on R’COUP’D Records – Fink’s imprint on Ninja Tune Records. Fink enlisted guest musicians to contribute to the record, with the intention of creating a modern blues record.
The album was recorded by Fink – real name Fin Greenall – at his studio in Berlin, and each track was recorded in one day, using one microphone, in mono. It was produced and mixed by Fink and Flood (U2, PJ Harvey, Warpaint) and mastered by John Dent at Loud Mastering.
Fin Greenall: “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 months in 2015 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… ”.
‘Sunday Night Blues Club Vol. 1’ follows Fink’s 2014 album ‘Hard Believer’. Fink is also due to release another new studio album later this year, further details to follow.
