Liam Finn is set to release his third solo album, The Nihilist, April 8th via Yep Roc.

Today Finn shared the record’s first single, “Snug as Fuck”. Speaking to SPIN, he said of the album, “there was a surreal feeling created through the energy of where I was and looking over at Manhattan and seeing it as a subconscious dimension, an entity in itself where every story under the sun was happening all at once. Any fantasy or fear you have in your own mind is probably playing out in reality in Manhattan at any one time.”
