You can hear The Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn's debut solo single 'Honolulu Blues' by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

The track is taken from the singer's debut solo album, which is titled 'Clear Heart Full Eyes' and which will be released on January 23. 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'
'Terrified Eyes'
'Western Pier'
'Honolulu Blues'
'Rented Room'
'Balcony'
'Not Much Left Of Us'
