LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, June 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Newton Faulkner is celebrating his sixth studio album, Hit The Ground Running, with a trip to the UAE. Having completed sold out tours across the UK, Europe and Australia, he is now heading to Dubai.
Hit The Ground Running comes just over ten years since the British singer-songwriter released his double platinum debut album, Hand Built By Robots. Featuring the exuberance of album opener ‘Smoked Ice Cream’ and This Kind Of Love to the mellow tones of All She Needs and Finger Tips, Hit The Ground Running is a bonafide package of musical variety, something that has become expected from Faulkner. Of the album, Newton says; “I started working this album with two main principles in mind. One, I wanted it to be at its best performed solo live and two, I wanted to push my voice further than before.”
When he emerged in 2007, Newton Faulkner was the fleet-fingered prince of sparkling guitar pop. A graduate of the prestigious Academy of Contemporary Music, the songwriter had a million-selling, Number One hit with his debut album, Hand Built By Robots. Singles, Dream Catch Me, and I Need Something, still soundtrack festivals all over the world, along with his innovative cover of Massive Attack’s Teardrop. This is a man who knows how to entertain and to enthral. Later this year he is due to star in the iconic War Of The Worlds arena tour, throughout the UK.
Finger Tips, released on June 22nd, will be the first single released in the UAE. Newton says of the single, “I wrote this with Kristin Hosein, who is an incredible singer and has worked vocally for all kinds of people from Sting to Ollie Murs. It would be fair to say she is the vocal nerd equivalent to my guitar nerd. This song pushes my voice further than I‘ve ever been brave enough to push it. Add my inner guitar nerd to the mix and I think the guitars are present and strong enough to keep everyone happy! I’m really excited about bringing the single to the UAE and performing in the Dubai for the first time.”
Newton will perform at Dubai International Airport, headlining the #musicDXB series at 11pm on 28th June in Concourse B, and at Pizza Express Live, Business Bay, on Friday, 29th June. Doors open at 8pm. Entry is free and all information can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/235869803910145/
