THE BRIT nominated, acoustic guitar virtuoso Newton Faulkner is set to release his third album Write It On Your Skin in July with its first single Clouds out that month too.

Since 2009’s Rebuilt By Humans album, he’s toured the world, started a family and, some might say, helped usher in a new generation of singersongwriters like Ed Sheeran.

His new record is said to be bristling with spontaneity, imagination and songs from unlikely sources.

Newton has sold over a million albums in the UK alone and his debut Hands Built By Robots spent over ten months inside the Top 40 album charts and become one of the Top 20 biggest selling UK digital albums of all time.

He comes to Cardiff’s Coal Exchange on Wednesday, May 9.
