Double Platinum selling singer Newton Faulkner caught up with Wave 105 presenter Andy Jackson ahead of his gig at the Old Fire Station, Bournemouth on Sunday November 22.

The singer spoke to Andy about ditching his dreadlocks in the name of art – Newton cuts them off himself in his new music video to signify shedding the old and opening a new chapter with the launch of his new album Human Love.

The star tells Andy about making the chop: “You cannot mess that up, it was the most ridiculously stressful shoot I have ever done!”

Human Love is due to be released on Friday November 20, ahead of Newton’s new single Get Free which will be available to buy from Friday November 27.

Mixed by Cenzo Townshend (The Maccabees, Jungle and George Ezra,) Human Love continues the singers penchant for covers; his version of Massive Attack’s Teardrop on his debut album was launched to much critical acclaim.

In total, Newton has chalked up four Top 10 selling albums, including 2007’s Hand Built By Robots and Write In On Your Skin in 2012.
