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.”
He is the feelgood man of the season, the summertime troubadour who brings singalong vibes. As he says now with a laugh, despite his trademark rust-red dreads, he only seems to get recognized when it's sunny outdoors:
"For some reason if it's raining it can't be me - but if the sun's shining, then it's definitely me! I'm completely affiliated with the sun. I get that now."
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.
