Paloma Faith will release her amazing third album ‘A Perfect Contradiction’ on March 7. The album, which follows 2012’s double platinum selling ‘Fall To Grace’, features a roster of legendary music icons, singer-songwriters and producers including Pharrell Williams (who collaborated on first single ‘Can’t Rely On You’), Diane Warren, Plan B, John Legend, Stewart Matthewman and Raphael Saadiq.

Most of the collaborators actively courted Paloma, with Pharrell approaching her at the Met Ball, and Diane Warren repeatedly calling to ask Paloma to listen to a song she had written with her in mind.

‘A Perfect Contradiction’ marks a change in sound for Paloma. She said: “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 shit, fuck it, let’s have a dance’ kind of record.”

Paloma wrote a lot of the album whilst living in New York last year, and completed the recording process between there, Miami, LA and London. As well as the older sounds she has always adored, Paloma channelled Eryka Badu and Jill Scott, The Fugees and N.E.R.D. One of the benchmarks for the album was Candi Staton’s classic ‘Young Hearts Run Free’: a song in which the lyrics speak of sadness, but the delivery leaves you feeling absolutely empowered: “I’ve been reflecting on things that have been tough, but I’m almost celebrating that. If you haven’t been to the bottom, you wouldn’t be able to recognise how it feels to feel really amazing, after all”.
