Singer-songwriter Newton Faulkner has released his third album in as many years.

After going on tour and having his first child, he told BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire that he was inspired to "stay true" to himself and write music that would work well at festivals.

6 Music's Matt Everitt and Radio 1 Xtra's Weekend Breakfast presenter Nick Bright also gave their verdict on his new single Clouds, from the album Write It On Your Skin.

Clouds is written by Newton Faulkner, Sam Farrar and Toby Faulkner; and published by Peermusic (UK) limited, Warner and Chappell music publishing.
