Paloma Faith has premiered three brand new songs live off her upcoming US debut album Fall To Grace (Epic). Paloma recorded the songs during an intimate acoustic performance at Le Baron Chinatown for ENCORE! Sessions' season finale.
The session, which was her first ever live performance in the US, includes "Picking Up the Pieces," "30 Minute Love Affair," and "Just Be."
A captivating chanteuse, a rabble-rousing entertainer and theatrical fashion chameleon, Paloma Faith's album, Fall To Grace, just debuted on the top of the UK charts, at No. 2, to critical acclaim. Fall To Grace will mark Paloma Faith's first official US release when the album is out later this year.
The press is lauding the breakout performer, with Mojo raving, "she sings the bejesus out of these big, open-hearted tunes;" The Sun dubbed Faith "compellingly unique;" and The Times praised her "big, hook-laden pop tunes."
Produced by Nellee Hooper (Bjork, No Doubt, Massive Attack, Madonna) along with Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran), Fall To Grace is full of Faith's bluesy power and husky emotion.
