But when it came to hearing the finished album for the first, however, Fink was unprepared for his reaction, he told the Guardian. "The first time I listened to our new album in full I just broke down," he said. "I was in tears from the third track until the end. I've never had an experience like that before."
Marling and Fink split last year, as Noah and the Whale began work on the new record, which deals with the long and emotional journey out of a broken relationship.
"It was very cathartic to make the album, force myself into a horrible moment and bring up that emotion again. Singing it to the band for the first time was awkward, but if you decide to do a project like this, you have to embrace it," he said.
Fink will have to grin his teeth and deal with the pain a little more as he prepares to take the band on tour in the U.K. and elsewhere after the album's release on Aug. 31.
The tour will also see him playing without his brother Doug, who has quit the band to resume his studies for a medical degree.
