Four years on from his last studio album, Newton worked throughout lockdown from his recording studio in East London, exploring new ideas and styles, and using them as the building blocks for his latest 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 perhaps simpler but it’s tasteful; it works. I can feel it.”

INTERFERENCE (OF LIGHT) is an album that sees Newton push himself, both musically and vocally, as he explains. “It’s grizzly, it’s soulful and it’s a step further. Vocally, I’ve learned a huge amount over the years. I was a guitarist and a songwriter 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 new album also sees him at his most daring but most familiar. Keeping to his trademark storytelling, the album reflects his feelings on current times and how he took a different approach to recording during restrictions. “I don’t think things get better or worse,” he says, “they just change. I’ve purposefully steered away from any of the cliques that have appeared around me. I’ve just remained this solitary figure. This record was made during the strangest of global times, which presented huge challenges. Without these challenges, the record would not have been the same. Everyone involved, from the producers to the players, had to think and work in new, strange, and exciting ways. I thank them all for their hard work and I hope they’re all as proud of this record as I am.




Since the release of his debut album 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. He now heads out on tour to play live to music-starved fans across the UK and Ireland.
