Newton Faulkner has announced his eighth studio album ‘Interference (Of Light)’, due out for release this August.
The singer-songwriter has been working from his East London recording studio. Gearing up to be his most daring record yet, but also his most familiar, Faulkner ventured into new and unexplored ideas to create the building blocks for the album.
Discussing his new material, he commented, “I’m not very precious any more…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.”
“I want to boil things down to their strongest form…It’s about the songs. However good you are at playing, if the voice isn’t up to scratch and the songs aren’t good enough, no one is going to listen to them.”
“It’s grizzly, soulful, and a step further…Vocally, I’ve learned a huge amount over the years. I was a guitarist and a writer who sang. That’s kind of where I came from. And now I feel like my voice has caught up with the stuff I was doing on guitar.”
The album will follow 2017s ‘Hit The Ground Running’ and supported by a brand new UK tour in autumn 2021.
The run of shows will follow the artist’s current rescheduled tour dates, which were originally due to take place this spring.
An official release date for the album is yet to be announced.
