Faith + Grace, baby!
Paloma is falling!
Paloma Faith will be releasing an album in the US for the very first time this summer! Following her UK-platinum-selling 2009 album Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful?, Paloma Faith will return with brand new album Fall to Grace. The platter was written and recorded in London over the past year and is produced by Nellee Hooper (Massive Attack, Björk, Madonna).
The first single is "Picking Up the Pieces" Watch the new video here below.
Paloma said, "The new album has taken on a very cinematic mood. 'Picking Up the Pieces' is no exception. It deals with the issues of being in a relationship with someone who is still recovering from a previous relationship with another person. It is a song about self-doubt and insecurity." She adds, "I am very excited to introduce my new sound into the world. Working with Nellee Hooper has been really inspirational."
Nellee Hooper said, "I'd never really heard of Paloma Faith… Sony/RCA called me and suggested I meet her when I was next in London. At lunch she sat and talked in such detail, as if every song was a short film, referencing everything from Chinese romantic cinema to Hip Hop. [Meeting with Paloma] reminded me of my first meeting with Bjork… We just threw ourselves into the unknown… No idea or fear, just pure heart and adventure! I'm just so glad she asked to hold my hand and jump together!"
Born in Hackney, London, Paloma Faith is half-Spanish and half-British. As an ex magician's assistant, trained contemporary dancer, St Martin's alumni with an MA in theatre direction, a performer in burlesque shows, and an actress, Paloma has been mixing artistic media throughout her short adult life. A few years ago she introduced music, her primary love, into the equation, at first mimicking the blues and soul singers she so admired, but eventually finding her own voice. As a muse to many of the greatest fashion houses in Europe, most recently Dolce & Gabbana, Paloma's artistry transcends genre, making her one of the most curious and sought after creatures in the world of modern pop music.
