Faulkner’s 31 track double album ‘The Very Best Of Newton Faulkner…So Far’ was released in March 2019 including fan favourites such as ‘Dream Catch Me’, ‘Write It On Your Skin’ and ‘Clouds’ as well as three brand new songs all showcasing Newton’s brilliance as a songwriter. In addition, Newton’s renowned cover versions will be presented on a second disc including newly recorded live versions of iconic songs ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and ‘Send Me On My Way’ that fans have been asking for for years!
Newton comments; “The Best Of feels like a real milestone, I’m so proud of it as a body of work and the second disc was so much fun to make. I love the challenge of covering songs, which probably is reflected in my song choices. For people that have seen me live before, there are some old favourites and there’s also some tracks no one has ever heard me do”.
To celebrate the release of his ‘Best Of’ album Newton will embark on a run of nationwide tour dates in Spring .. Newton says; ‘It's going to be awesome to be doing a tour where the challenge isn't to do as much new stuff as possible, but just to do the best set, with the best songs from any point in my career’.
