The album brings together 12 songs taken from six of his solo albums plus one brand new song, Live It And Breathe It.

While fans can expect to hear many of the songs contained on the new album, their will also be some other choice numbers from his solo days, together with a few Stranglers classics.

And three days later on Wenesday November 18 singer-songwriter Newton Faulkner plays the venue ahead of teh release of his fifth album Human Love.

Faulkner – known for his his percussive style of guitar playing – hit the ground running with his 2007 debut album Hand Built by Robots which went double platinum and spurned the singles Dream Catch Me, I Need Something and Teardrop.

He followed it with further hit albums Rebuilt by Humans, Write It On Your Skin, and Studio Zoo.
