^ I thought she couldn't have a better album cover than the one for "A Perfect Contradiction", but the one for "The Architect" looks even more amazing to me.

Divine cover, but at the same time not surprising, her artwork has always been outstanding.

She should release a promo single or something or she'll only have "Crybaby" which will probably be forgotten by the time the album is released since it's still almost a full month until we're there.

I am not feeling the artwork though, a bit too progressive rock for me

Yep, I know. :) I'm not sure if it'll help her though as it's not doing anything on the charts. Nevertheless I think this way it's better than "Crybaby" being the only released song until the album release.

She posted teasers of a few songs from her upcoming album on Twitter:

"Surrender":
https://twitter.com/Palomafaith/status/ ... 4037271552

"Kings and Queens":
https://twitter.com/Palomafaith/status/ ... 2689101829

"Warrior":
https://twitter.com/Palomafaith/status/ ... 4013457408

"The Architect":
https://twitter.com/Palomafaith/status/ ... 1401046016

The teasers are very short though, so I can't really say anything about them.

Agreed. Strictly is a better fit for the type of artist she is anyway!

On YouTube there are live performances of a few songs from "The Architect" that we haven't heard yet. Out of these new songs, this one's my favourite:



But the other songs seem really nice as well. :) Tomorrow we'll finally be able to listen to the album, can't wait. :D

I think this album will be a grower for me (which is a first for me & a Paloma album). Overall I like the second half of the album more sound wise. Highlights so far: Guilty, Crybaby, I‘ll be gentle (feat John Legend), Kings and queens, still around, tonight‘s not the only night, my body (pretty fresh sound for her). I don‘t like the song Sia wrote and a lot of the tracks in the first half don‘t sound properly mixed to me, her voice gets drowned out in the choruses. I‘m also missing the signature Paloma ballad à la „New York“, „picking up the pieces“, „just be“ & „only love can hurt like this“. I know she said that this album is about what is going on in the world today (I appreciate her awareness and the motive behind it), but it doesn’t really pull me in like that, the intros seem out of place.

I've listened to the album once so far and it seems amazing. I don't wanna say more for now though, since a lot can change after the first listen, but maybe I'll post some kind of personal review later today or tomorrow after I've listened to the album a few more times.

I hope so too. I'd say it's my favourite song from the album after the first listen and it would definitely be a good single choice. :D

First listen and my verdict is -

Instant. Catchy. Polished.

Too many favourites to mention ! Lots of songs have single potential

With better mixing this would be so much better tbh.
