Newton Faulkner made his new LP 'Human Love' for festivals.
The 'Dream Catch Me' hitmaker is excited about going on tour with a full band for the first time after years of playing on his own and promises his live shows are going to "step up a notch".
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz about his new album, he said: "I wrote it for festivals, so live wise, it is going to step up a notch. Obviously I played on my own for six or seven years, so now I've got a band. I've got a drummer, I've got my brother playing loads of stuff, I think he is playing nine instruments."
But speaking prior to the release of 'Human Love' - which was out on Friday (20.11.15) - the flame-haired singer said he was trying to "put a lid" on his "excited" feelings towards the record because he can never gauge how it's going to be received.
He added: "I am trying to kind of put a lid on my own happiness. I don't want to get too excited before it comes out - just in case. I am really pleased. The first handful of reviews that I have seen. People seem to like it. It is weird because you make something over a period of time and you have no idea when you finish if anyone is going to get it."
