David Newton – the multi-faceted musician and producer best known for his work with the seminal British group The Mighty Lemon Drops – has released his first solo album. According to Imperfect Fifth, A Gateway To A Lifetime Of Disappointment “is a prime example of the variety in Newton repertoire, mixing genres and stepping outside of the box with lyrics. ‘My First Band’ and ‘Paint the Town’ fit between the styles of indie-rock and pop. Although Newton took on most of the work on this record, he did have help from other musicians. ‘Bittersweet’ features The Happy Hollows’ Sarah Negahdari on vocals and Nick Amoroso on drums, adding some flair to the track. The shortest and sweetest track, ‘This Time’, is all about happiness and love. Listening to it you can feel the emotion behind his voice, making it the most sincere on the album. Similarly, ‘Connect With You’ has an almost giddy feeling to it, connecting you to Newton.”
