SOURCEFollowing her platinum-selling 2009 album Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful? Paloma Faith will return to music with new single and album releases in May 2012.
Brand new single, Picking Up The Pieces is set to be released on May 20, prior to her sophomore album Fall To Grace on May 28 which is produced by Nellee Hooper, famed for his work with Massive Attack, Soul II Soul and Bjork amongst others.
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 added: “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!”
