A RECORD store was packed out for a special intimate in-store performance.

English singer Newton Faulkner had fans entranced as he ran through a series of his most well-known songs at a small acoustic performance at Resident record store, in Kensington Gardens, Brighton.

The songwriter, from Reigate, Surrey, delighted his audience with some of his folk-rock hits, as well as having a joke around with them in between songs.

Faulkner, 34, rose to fame off the back of his debut album, 2007’s Hand Built By Robots, which soared to number one in the UK charts.

Since then he has released five further studio albums, the latest being Hit The Ground Running, which hit shelves in 2017.

The intimate Resident appearance came ahead of Newton’s upcoming UK tour.

The singer will visit 11 cities across the country, the closest to Brighton being the London Palladium on April 24.

Newton Faulkner’s UK tour kicks off in Bournemouth on April 22.
