This mellow guitar track is the title song of Newton Faulkner's sixth album. He told The Independent
during a track-by-track interview:
"It's the first track that made everything else lean the way it did production wise and vocally. It's the first thing that I recorded that fully made sense, and when I played it to people they got excited, which is always great. 'Hit The Ground Running'" as a track is very minimalist, much more soul-y than anything I've done in the past and pushes my vocals to the max which is something I really wanted to do.
It's one of the flagship tracks for both grooves and vocals, which is what I focused on above anything else on this record. It's got a really nice little groove and the vocal is one of the hardest things to sing that I have ever written, but hopefully is nice to listen to however challenging it is to do."
