Hear Craig Finn Play Two Unreleased Tunes

Last month, Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn released Clear Heart Full Eyes, his first-ever solo album, and he’s lately done a few different in-studio sessions for a few different media outlets. At a couple of those, he’s played songs that, for whatever reason, didn’t appear on the album. During his session for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts video session, he did one called “Jeremiah’s Blues,” a really sad and beautifully written story-song that should’ve absolutely been on the album. And on a session for Minnesota Public Radio’s The Current, he played the new one “Sarah, I’m Surrounded,” and it could’ve also made the cut. Hear him play both below.
