Paloma Faith, falling back to pop

Paloma Faith returns to music in May with a (surprise!) Nellee Hooper produced album called Fall To Grace. The first single, out May 20, is called Picking Up The Pieces. Hooper has produced most famously for Bjork, but also did Lamya's stunning debut and, of course, Madonna's track Bedtime Story.

I think it's safe to assume that Wong Kar-wai's beautiful film noir, In The Mood For Love, is an inspiration for Paloma..

I've written a lot about Paloma over the past few years. Her 2009 debut album, Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful? is a must-own record. The visuals for that LP were always nothing less than stunning.
