NEWS: Newton Faulkner to play Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool in October

Deadlocked folk singer Newton Faulkner has announced plans for a UK tour in October which includes stops at a handful of Northern venues. The trek, which will see him play before crowds in Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds will kick off on October 1st in Edinburgh and follows the release of his eagerly anticipated third album. Scheduled for release on July 9th, Write It On Your Skin was recorded beneath the blazing LA sun in a garage recording studio.  With a little help from his brother Toby and Phantom Planet’s Sam Farrar, Faulkner’s first new record in over three years will release its debut single Clouds later this summer on July 1st.

A summer release seems quite fitting for Faulkner’s return to the airwaves as his upbeat sound and sunshine-friendly attitude have made him synonymous with good vibes in the eyes of his fans. “For some reason if it’s raining it can’t be me,” says Faulkner of being recognized by admirers, “but if the sun’s shining then it’s definitely me! I’m completely affiliated with the sun!”

Full tour details can be found below. Tickets go on general sale on Friday 25th May.
