In 2014, he released the album Hard Believer, his most successful album to date, charting in a great number of European Albums Charts.

About the concept of the album "Perfect Darkness":

"With Fink we do sing about relationships and love and emotions – but we also sing about other stuff: embracing fear, Berlin dawns, looking forward. Perfect Darkness was written about a friend of mine who’s just signed a massive record deal and it’s all about to kick off. And I’m saying, ‘just roll with it man. It’s gonna get dark but you’ll survive and you’ll come out the other side.’" - Fin Greenall.

Todays tune is taken from the fifth album "Perfect Darkness". It was released in 2011. The album was produced by Billy Bush (who has worked with artists such as BECK and GARBAGE) and recorded in Brighton and Los Angeles. The tune "Warm Shadow" was used as a soundtrack in the season 3 episode 13 of "The Walking Dead" TV sires.
