Newton Faulkner reveals new video for Hit The Ground Running

NEWTON FAULKNER has unveiled the official animated video for his latest single, HIT THE GROUND RUNNING, taken from his brand new sixth studio album of the same name, out now on Battenberg Records via Absolute.

When he first emerged in 2007, NEWTON FAULKNER was the fleet-fingered prince of sparkling guitar pop. A graduate of the Guildford Academy of Contemporary Music, the Surrey songwriter had a million selling Number One hit with his debut album HAND BUILT BY ROBOTS. The singles DREAM CATCH ME and I NEED SOMETHING still soundtrack festivals all over the world, along with his innovative cover of Massive Attack’s TEARDROP. This is a man who knows how to entertain and to enthrall.

The last two years since releasing his most recent album HUMAN LOVE have seen Newton join the cast of the award-winning musical American Idiot, based on the music of punk rock group Green Day. Now, off the back of storming performances at Boardmasters, Solfest and Greenbelt Festivals this summer, October will see Newton embark on a 37-date tour around the UK, as follows:
