Five years after his solo debut, Newman's recent Get Guilty continues the Canadian songwriter's power-pop vision, with anthems that are at once hooky and idiosyncratic. In an interview with host David Dye, Newman talks about his obsession with pop music's history, as well as the fear that he might too closely imitate one of his favorite finds. Find out which find by clicking the audio link above.
