Bass legend Tony Newton is releasing a timely new single “Stop That Sh*t” from his newly released acclaimed new album “White Light Collection.” Says Brett David Stewart of JukeboxPodcast, “Lyrically, the single takes aim at those who only want to benefit themselves, often at the cost of those around them and future generations. ‘Stop That Sh*t,’ Newton croons funkily as he points the finger at a ‘bad cancer’ of society – those with endless greed.”
