NEWTON FAULKNER has announced the release of TOGETHER, the first single to be taken from his forthcoming new album INTERFERENCE (OF LIGHT) which will be released on 20 August via Battenberg Records on vinyl, CD and digital formats.

 

TOGETHER is a deeply personal track, as Newton explains: “I wrote this song with a couple of guys called Michael. I was in Australia having a great time but missing home, and this song is about being reunited with the people you love. When it was written I had no idea of the levels of isolation the global population would be subjected to and, now that things are starting to edge their way back to normality, it seems more relevant than ever.

 

 

 

INTERFERENCE (OF LIGHT) sees Newton at his most daring, and his most familiar. Keeping to his trademark songwriting and storytelling, the album reflects his feelings on current times. “I don’t think things get better or worse, they just change,” he says. “I’ve kind of purposefully steered away from any of the cliques that have appeared around me. I’ve just remained this solitary figure. I love it!

 

Four years on from his last studio album, Newton worked 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 this 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.”

 

INTERFERENCE (OF LIGHT) will be released on vinyl, CD and digital formats, all featuring different track lists, as Newton explains.

 

The way we listen to music has changed dramatically in the time I’ve been making music and, for me, each medium has a different purpose and requires a different approach. Interludes, which played a huge part in Hand Built by Robots, make no sense being streamed on an online playlist but work amazingly on a CD, and vinyl is a different experience again. So, I’ve decided to package this album differently for each format: streaming sites will get a 17-track album with no interludes; the CD will be 17 tracks plus interludes for a smoother flow; and the vinyl will be 11 tracks curated to work on one disc with the best possible flow from one side to the other and the best possible sound.”

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 to tour the album to live music-starved fans throughout the UK.
