Double number 1, multi-platinum selling, Brit nominated, acoustic guitar virtuoso Newton Faulkner has just released his new album Studio Zoo through RCA.
Newton made history while producing the album as he live-streamed the entire recording process 24/7 for 5 weeks from his home studio. Fans could log in online to follow every detail of the ups, downs, dramas and laughs including guest appearances from Ted Dwane (Mumford & Sons) and X Factor’s Janet Devlin.
At the start of the project, Newton announced: “I am as excited as I am terrified by the prospect of having a house full of cameras film me while trying to record an album. The entire recording process will be streamed live and nothing has been recorded in advance – apart from some particularly good hand claps recorded in Paris. The album will be made before your very eyes, no tricks, no producer and no engineer, just me, a guitar and a few surprise guests”.
Newton’s last album Write It On Your Skin went straight to number one in the UK, as did his double platinum debut record Hand Built By Robots. Newton Faulkner has sold over 1.5million albums in the UK alone, has most recently performed at Isle Of Wight festival, and finished a sold out world tour earlier this year which took him to Australia and the Far East.
