A galvanizing live performer praised for her captivating stage presence and soulful vocal prowess, Paloma Faith promises to deliver an electrifying live experience not to be missed. In addition to performing favorites from her two previous albums, fans can look forward to her bringing down the house with "Only Love Can Hurt Like This" the stunning new single from A Perfect Contradiction written by Diane Warren.
The 11-track album is a collection of tragic love stories that feature singles "Can't Relay On You," "Trouble With My Baby" and the powerful ballad, "Only Love Can Hurt Like This." Also included on the new album is "Take Me" a collaboration with John Legend and Mr Hudson that's featured in the new TV ad for Altuzarra's limited edition Target collection. Already a platinum smash in the UK where it's one of 2014's top-selling albums and has remained in the Top 10 since its March 10th release, A Perfect Contradiction features collaborations with Pharrell Williams, John Legend and Raphael Saadiq. The album marks a change in sound for Paloma who explains, "Its tone is the very opposite of what the last album was. There are a couple of melancholy moments, sure, but it's much more a 'if it's all gone to s**t, f**k it, let's have a dance' kind of record."
Recently named Best British Act at the 2014 Silver Clef Awards and Best UK Solo Artist at the 2014 UK Glamour Awards, Paloma Faith has released two double platinum albums in the UK, 2009's Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful?, and 2012's Fall to Grace. She's now poised to conquer America with the October 7th release of A Perfect Contradiction so mark those calendars for the British firecracker's American adventure!
