Newton Faulkner has today announced that he will kick off a year celebrating a decade in music with the release of his new single “Wish I Could Wake Up” which is released today.

Pre-sale tickets will be available from 9am on Wednesday 12 December at for those who have pre-ordered the album with general on sale at 9am on Friday 14 December.

Recently released, Newton’s highly anticipated new single “Wish I Could Wake Up”, is a brilliant reminder that there is more to the commerciality of Christmas and that the best gift is often already part of our lives. Talking about the new track, Newton comments; “This song’s about wanting to wake up next to someone special at Christmas, and how that person can make any day, Christmas or not, seem so much better just by being there.”

Faulkner’s 31 track double album “The Very Best Of Newton Faulkner So Far will be released in March 2019 including fan favourites such as “Dream Catch Me”, “Write It On Your Skin” and “Clouds” as well as three brand new songs all showcasing Newton’s brilliance as a songwriter. In addition, Newton’s renowned cover versions will be presented on a second disc including newly recorded live versions of iconic songs “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Send Me On My Way” that fans have been asking for for years!

Newton comments; “The Best Of feels like a real milestone, I’m so proud of it as a body of work and the second disc was so much fun to make. I love the challenge of covering songs, which probably is reflected in my song choices. For people that have seen me live before, there are some old favourites and thereís also some tracks no one has ever heard me do”.

To celebrate the release of his “Best Of” album Newton will embark on a run of nationwide tour dates in Spring 2019. See full dates below. Newton says; “It’s going to be awesome to be doing a tour where the challenge isn’t to do as much new stuff as possible, but just to do the best set, with the best songs from any point in my career”.
