Craig Finn’s new album, I Need A New War, has brought him and his band, The Uptown Controllers, on tour and into Studio 1A. This new album is the third of a trilogy: Finn’s 2015 release Faith in the Future and 2017’s We All Want The Same Things precede his latest project. I Need A New War takes a look into the intricacies of life in New York City.
