Dear lovely ones, It’s been a while since I wrote because I haven’t really felt like I have had a huge amount to report on but I didn’t want you all to think I’d disappeared off the face of this earth so I am here now writing to you! So here’s some solid info after all this time…. Basically most of the people who ran my record label left which meant that I was on my own beavering away with very little assistance for a while, while they put all the new people in place. Now they have done that I have a brand spanking new team and everyone is very helpful and excited. This inevitably set me back a little bit but now all is back on track and I am pretty much there with the writing. I am doing little bits and bobs still but my main aim now is to find the right producer and actually start recording it! I am kind of nervous and excited at the same time and gagging to get back on tour and promoting some new material but obviously I was a bit way laid by all the change at the label. Good news is, I am very excited about it and am aiming for it to be a goodun (just need to find the producer).... I simply cannot wait anymore to start playing it to you so will [banana] well get on with it! Love and miss you all! Paloma xSo it sounds like Paloma is in search of a producer for her new album. No problem, right? I mean who wouldn't want to work with Faith! She has a big voice and a big personality to match. Faith's debut album was produced by the ever-fabulous Greg Kurstin (Lily Allen, Sia, Kylie Minogue). The album debuted at #9 on the UK Album Charts back in September of 2009 and spawned two top 20 singles, including her debut single "Stone Cold Sober" (#17) and follow up single "New York" (#15). While subsequent singles, "Upside Down" (#55), "New York" featuring Ghostface Killah (#44), "Smoke & Mirrors" (#140) and the album's title track (#64) failed to make sparks on singles chart, the fact that she got 6 singles is pretty impressive in and of itself.
With the right producer and promotion, Paloma Faith's sophomore effort could be a hit. I just hope and pray her label doesn't screw her over. It sounds like she's got a good team in place at her label, one that believes in her and her brand so fingers crossed! This lady deserves all of the success in the world and I can't wait to hear what she has to offer our ears in 2012.
