NEWTON FAULKNER has announced that his new album INTERFERENCE (OF LIGHT) will be released on 20 August via Battenberg Records on vinyl, CD and digital formats.
Four years on from his last studio album, Newton has been working throughout lockdown from his recording studio in East London, exploring a number of new and unexplored styles and ideas, using them as the building blocks for his new album. “I’m not very precious anymore,” he remarks. “The music is a bit chunkier, it’s definitely way heavier and much less acoustic than previously. I feel like the stuff I’ve written recently is simpler but it’s tasteful … it works as songs. I can feel it.”
The first single from the album, TOGETHER, will be released in early June.
Since the release of Hand Built By Robots in 2007 (featuring the massive hit Dream Catch Me) Newton Faulkner has become one of the UK’s most successful singer-songwriters of the millennium. Later this year, he will be heading out on tour to play to live music-starved fans across the UK, starting with a number of socially distanced gigs, many of which are already sold out.
Newton will perform at The Wardrobe in Leeds on May 30th, Holmfirth Picturedrome on September 26th, the Asylum in Hull on October 18th and The Leadmill in Sheffield on October 19th 2021.
