Paloma Faith to release second album ‘Fall To Grace’ in May

The follow up to 2009's 'Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful?' is produced by Nellee Hooper

London singer songwriter Paloma Faith is set to release her second album, ‘Fall To Grace’, on May 28.

The album will be preceded by the single, ‘Picking Up The Pieces’, on May 20. Recorded in her hometown, Faith says the new record is ‘cinematic’ in tone: “The new album has taken on a very cinematic mood. ‘Picking Up The Pieces’ is no exception,” she revealed. “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 that working with producer Nellee Hooper (Massive Attack, Bjork, Garbage, No Doubt, Gwen Stefani) was ‘inspirational’. Hooper himself said: “I’d never really heard of Paloma Faith. I was living in LA when her record came out, so I kind of missed it. Sony/RCA called me and suggested I meet her when I was next in London.”

He said that his first meeting with the singer reminded him of the first time he met Bjork. “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.”

He continued: 2It reminded me of my first meeting with Bjork; she arrived at my house with a tiny suitcase with a few clothes and some ragged old cassettes. Four months later we came out of the house with Bjork – ‘Debut’.”
