It contains 11 tracks in all and has produced by Spoon/...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead knob twiddler Mike McCarthy. 'Honolulu Blues' will be released as a single on Monday (November 28).

Finn has previously described the album as "quieter" than his work with The Hold Steady and said he "wanted to gain some experience of making a record with new people".

He said of 'Clear Heart Full Eyes': "I had written a bunch of songs that were outside of the norm for The Hold Steady, a little quieter and perhaps more narrative. I wanted to gain some experience and insight into the process of making a record by working with new people."

The tracklisting for 'Clear Heart Full Eyes' is as follows:

'Apollo Bay'
'When No One’s Watching'
'No Future'
'New Friend Jesus'
'Jackson'
