Double number 1, multi-platinum selling, Brit nominated, acoustic guitar virtuoso Newton Faulkner is set to release his new album Studio Zoo through RCA on August 26. The single Losing Ground will follow on September 9, and a UK headline tour is to follow in 2014, kicking off in Dublin on the 6th Feb.
Newton made history while producing the album as he live-streamed the entire recording process 24/7 for 5 weeks from his home studio. Fans could log in online to follow every detail of the ups, downs, dramas and laughs including guest appearances from Ted Dwane (Mumford & Sons) and X Factor’s Janet Devlin.
At the start of the project, Newton announced: "I am as excited as I am terrified by the prospect of having a house full of cameras film me while trying to record an album. The entire recording process will be streamed live and nothing has been recorded in advance - apart from some particularly good hand claps recorded in Paris. The album will be made before your very eyes, no tricks, no producer and no engineer, just me, a guitar and a few surprise guests”.
Losing Ground will be the first single taken from the record and Newton says of the track: “It's about battling on even when you know you're on the back foot. You go through ups and downs and it's about being in a down but being ok with it, because you know there must be an up on the way...hopefully.”
Newton’s last album Write It On Your Skin went straight to number one in the UK, as did his double platinum debut record Hand Built By Robots. Newton Faulkner has sold over 1.5million albums in the UK alone, has most recently performed at Isle Of Wight festival, and finished a sold out world tour earlier this year which took him to Australia and the Far East.
Support for this show will be Sam Brookes. At 27, Sam Brookes is a seasoned veteran of the live music circuit. Not your stereotypical ‘folk bard ‘ his love of singing and performing has been evolving since his days as a chorister, singing for the Queen at her private Chapel in Great Windsor Park; add to this his training as a gilder and a keen interest in sport and Sam already stands apart from his contemporaries.
