fin. marked the return of former member Harmonic, and was produced by renowned artists such as Kanye West and Chris Martin. The purpose and intent of the album is to relive the memories and evolution of Unnamed, and for singers and the band to pay respect to Danny after his death in 2016.
The song is dominated by unreleased tracks and remixes of older singles. The Will makes it's first appearance on an official Unnamed album after being absent since Octo EP. Other songs that exclusively feature Danny include: Begin, On Me (Tonight), and Her Eyes. A duet between Danny and Petal that was previously meant for Archangel was included, being scratched from it's original release due to the tensions between the band. A rare recording of Danny and new singer Tyrel O'Reily was uncovered by the band's old label, Polydor, and was subsequently returned to the group. It was edited and completed through Kanye West's label.
A song that compiled the mp3. Saga was mixed by Jay-Z and included A Boogie wit da Hoodie and returning-guest artist Alex Turner. Different versions of several songs were placed on the album, including a remixed version of Unnamed, and it's unreleased 2004 version.
