English roots singer-songwriter Newton Faulkner has just announced a bunch of Australian tour dates when he’s in the country for Bluesfest this March and April.

Faulkner will be releasing his new album Hit The Ground Running on the 2nd February so fans can expect to hear the new material when he hits our shores.

The first track from Hit The Ground Running is also the title track.

“In the past I have mainly focused on pushing my guitar playing, on this album and particularly the first single, I decided to focus on my voice,” Newton Faulkner explained of the track. “On the last few albums, there were quite a few co-writes but on this one my brother forced me to write mostly on my own and this song is one of the ones that came out of that. It’s about messing things up but keeping moving forwards. I happen to have a reasonable amount of experience in both.”
