(New York, NY) – A captivating chanteuse, a rabble-rousing entertainer and theatrical fashion chameleon, Paloma Faith’s album Fall To Grace debuted on the top of the UK charts to critical acclaim earlier this year. Now Epic Records is thrilled to release the album stateside on November 27, 2012, which is sure to captivate U.S. audiences with Vogue leading the charge after recently naming her “Artist of the Week.” The first single “Picking Up The Pieces” is now available on iTunes at http://bit.ly/OWJc8u.
On her new album, Fall To Grace, Paloma Faith has made the decision to strip herself emotionally bare displaying her immense depth. Produced by Nellee Hooper (Bjork, No Doubt, Massive Attack, Madonna) along with Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran), the new album marks huge growth for the 26-year-old singer, taking hercompositions into a new, contemporary realm. Collaborating with songwriters such as Ed Harcourt, Matt Hales (Lianne La Havas), Dan Wilson (Adele), Wayne Hector (Britney, One Direction), and even film score composer David Arnold (countless James Bond films, Independence Day, Narnia), Fall To Grace is sonically varied, but completely cohesive, Faith’s vocals full of bluesy power and husky emotion.
“My album has taken on a very cinematic mood. ‘Picking Up The Pieces’ is no exception,” says Paloma. “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.”
So far in Paloma Faith’s year 2012:
· Prince declared his love for Paloma and handpicked the young singer to perform at his NPG Music and Arts Festival.
· Faith’s album, Fall To Grace, entered the official UK charts at #2, and has stayed in the Top 20 ever since.
· Paloma Faith was a mentor on The Voice UK, performed on The Voice UK, and got in a spot of trouble by not censoring herself when talking about The Voice UK.
· Paloma Faith ran with the freakin’ Olympic Torch for Pete’s sake – on her birthday no less! She did it in red stilettos.
· Still on the 2012 Things To Do list: Conquer America!
The vocal powerhouse has a degree in contemporary dance and a Masters in Time Based Arts from Central St Martin’s. A talented actress, she played the romantic foil to Tom Waits’ Devil in the Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus, and was also handpicked by none other than Prince to perform at the NPG Music and Arts Festival in Copenhagen in 2011. The Times praised Paloma’s theatrical stage show, citing “the rock-solid foundation of [Faith]‘s sensational singing voice and a personality that sparkled like a rough diamond.” Her single “New York” (off 2009’s “Do You Want the Truth, or Something Beautiful?”) sold a half a million copies and earned Faith a nomination for Best British Female at the Brit Awards, as well as the honor of closing the 2011 ceremony singing with Cee-Lo Green. At the behest of Chaka Khan, Faith performed “I’m Every Woman” in front of 50,000 people and earned plaudits from Annie Lennox, who selected Faith join her onstage in support of International Women’s Day.
