New Tunes: Newton Faulkner

Dreds UK

Here’s a cool cover of Massive Attack’s “Teardrop”, courtesy of 23-year old Brit-folk-popster Newton Faulkner. Good ol’ Newt will see the release of his U.S. debut album, Hand Built by Robots, on April 29th. But a 3-song iTunes exclusive EP is available right now, featuring the first single, “Dream Catch Me”.

Faulkner has a cool hand-tap percussion / bass / strumming technique on his guitar. You can see it in action in the video below. Pretty sweet.

Check out “Teardrop” and show the Newt some state-side looove…
