Fink to play Roxy in October

The British singer and songwriter is promoting his still untitled upcoming album

Folk-blues indie singer and songwriter Fin Greenall, known as Fink, will play Prague's Roxy club on Oct. 18 on a cryptically titled New Album tour.

Fink's European tour will also hit Fleda club in Brno on Oct. 17, coming from Vienna, and it will move to Munich after leaving Prague. It's the fifth time the artist will be coming to the Czech Republic.

The tour includes dates in 28 countries across Europe, and will close on Dec. 1 in Berlin, which is Fink's current hometown.

The new album, whose title has not yet been disclosed, is expected later this year. The studio album will feature Fink's longtime band members Tim Thornton on drums, guitars and percussion, and Guy Whittaker on bass, plus special guests.

Fink has been busy. He released a side-project album called Fink's Sunday Night Blues Club Vol. 1 on March 10 in CD, vinyl and digital form, and did a very small tour in support of it. The fall tour will be different than the one that that just ended.

Fink's Sunday Night Blues Club Vol.1 was recorded live in one day in Berlin, and it's Fink's “first purely blues musical output,” according to his website.

Fink called that album a real labor of love and a blues immersion he had been looking forward to for many years. “I wanted to do everything legit – fast recording, passion over skill. I’m totally proud of it, and really glad to get it out of my system,” he told ARTISTdirect.

Fink's Sunday Night Blues Club Vol. 1's eight tracks were recorded mostly in one take with one vintage mic and amp. In a statement on the record label website, he said part of the idea was to do something “raw, rough, and live, a record that just was, for its own sake” after some difficult work on his previous albums.

Aside his work as a singer, songwriter and guitarist, Fink is also known as a producer and DJ. The 44-year-old musician focused from 1997 to 2003 on electronic music and toured the world as DJ. In 2000 his debut album called Fresh Produce was released, but before his next album he decided to switch paths toward indie rock, folk and soul. 2006 saw the release of Biscuits for Breakfast, his first collaboration with Thornton and Whittaker. It earned generally positive reviews but failed to chart. He has released five studio albums since then, not counting Fink's Sunday Night Blues Club Vol. 1. The most successful were 2011's Perfect Darkness, which reached six on the UK Independent Singles and Album Breakers Charts, and 2014's Hard Believer, which reached number three on the same chart.

Fink has also collaborated with artists such as John Legend on “Move” and other songs, Professor Green on “Read All About It Part II,” and Amy Winehouse on “Halftime,” among others.
