Singer-songwriter, Newton Faulkner, releases his next single Ã¢Â€Â˜TeardropÃ¢Â€Â™ on December 17th 2007 through Ugly Truth Records. Ã¢Â€Â˜TeardropÃ¢Â€Â™ is a starkly beautiful, and utterly unique, take on the Massive Attack song and shows both NewtonÃ¢Â€Â™s magnificent voice and guitar versatility at their mesmerizing best.
The release of Ã¢Â€Â˜TeardropÃ¢Â€Â™ follows the spectacular success of NewtonÃ¢Â€Â™s Number One & Platinum debut album, Ã¢Â€Â˜Hand Built By RobotsÃ¢Â€Â™, which has so far spent two weeks at Number One on the UK album chart, as well as being a permanent fixture in the iTunes Top Ten since release (including five weeks at No1).
Ã¢Â€Â˜TeardropÃ¢Â€Â™ comes hot on the heels of NewtonÃ¢Â€Â™s last two singles, Ã¢Â€Â˜Dream Catch MeÃ¢Â€Â™ and Ã¢Â€Â˜All I GotÃ¢Â€Â™ which is currently riding high inside the UK Airplay Chart Top Ten.
Newton has just announced his biggest UK Tour to date through February and March 2008.
