[Listen] Craig Finn - 'Clear Heart Full Eyes' (Full Album Stream)

After having several previews from Craig Finn's debut solo LP Clear Heart Full Eyes in the shape of "New Friend Jesus", "Honolulu Blues" and another by the name of "Rented Room". Today, NPR has offered up the full stream of his effort which is enjoyed below this rambling. Hold Steady fans need not fret though as he's vowed for their return too. This album sees Finn stepping out of his comfort zone and growing as a lyricist upon first impressions at least. See what you think of it and look out for the LP in stores when it drops on January the 24th.

[Watch] Dave Grohl, Ryan Adams, Craig Finn & More Pay Tribute To Bob Mould

Two days ago in LA an evening at the Walt Disney Concert Hall a host of talent paid tribute to former Hüsker Dü and Sugar frontman Bob Mould. The talent included Dave GrohlCraig Finn, Britt Daniel and Ryan Adams. Chances are you didn't manage to get down to the gig but through the magic of the internet and the world we live in it hasn't taken long for performances and tracks to pop up online. Up at the top you can check out the set closer which was a rendition of "See The Light" which featured the entire cast that had graced the stage that night. After the jump you can peep performances from Dave who paired up with Bob for performances of "Hardly Getting Over It", "Could You Be The One" & and "Ice Cold Ice" before jumping behind the kit like the animal he is for a rendition of "New Day Rising". 

Right at the bottom after the jump you'll find the cool as ice Ryan Adams performing a cover of Bob Mould's track "Heartbreak A Stranger". All in all it looked like Bob had one hell of an evening and the fans got to see some world class music.

One titled "Honolulu Blues" and another by the name of "Rented Room", both of which can now be heard below via Finn's new UK label Full Time Hobby and their Soundcloud page. Thanks to TwentyFourBit for the heads up on this.
