Gearing up for another monumental chapter, British superstar Paloma Faith returns with the release of her brand new single and video ‘How You Leave A Man.’ The single precedes the 16th February release of Paloma’s sixth studio album ‘The Glorification of Sadness’ via RCA Records. Earlier this week Paloma shared the news of her new album release date and inspiration with a personal note to her fans letting them know she was “...Looking forward to sharing this new era.”
She excitedly heralds the highly anticipated album with new song ‘How You Leave A Man’, offering fans a taste of what to expect from the upcoming new album - listen HERE. Produced by award winning producer and composer Martin Wave and co-written with JKash, Andrew Wells, Ellie King and Charlie Puth. It has ALL the makings of a new era of Paloma. It’s confident. It’s cinematic. It’s empowering. It’s compelling from beginning to end, all powered by the kind of anthems that transformed her into an icon. The single is about finding the confidence to walk away from a relationship and being empowered with your own happiness, its limitless expression of pop allows it to sit comfortably next to Paloma’s many chart successors and then some.
But ‘The Glorification of Sadness’ is more than an album about relationships. The celebration of finding your way back after leaving a long term relationship, being empowered even in your failures and taking responsibility for your own happiness. It is her most personal album to date, drawing on her own experiences with Paloma acting as the anchor to direct a deeply personal narrative and album.
This is the first new music from Paloma since the release of her fifth studio album ‘Infinite Things’ in November 2020 and is the first time in her career where she has executively produced a record. The album is produced by Swedish born but LA native Martin Wave who made a name for himself within the Hollywood film space. Having started work together on a track for the new album and enjoying Martin’s cinematic style production he quickly became a cornerstone of the album. It also features collaborators Chase & Status, Kojey Radical, Maverick Sabre, Lapsley, MJ Cole, Fred Cox,Amy Wadge, Liam Bailey and Jaycen Joshua. ‘The Glorification of Sadness’ is available for pre-order at all physical and digital retailers and will be released on the 16th February via RCA Records.
