Paloma Faith Delivers Stunning Performance on Later...with Jools Holland; 'Picking Up The Pieces' Poised for Top 10 Debut


Paloma Faith

English songwriting siren Paloma Faith is in FULL PROMO mode this week leading up to the release of her highly anticipated sophomore album, Fall To Grace, due May 28th via RCA Records (read my REVIEW).  Faith stopped by Later...with Jools Holland on Tuesday, dazzling the audience with a real & raw performance of "Just Be," one of my clear stand outs off of the new record.

The bejeweled beauty is dressed to the nines in a frilly, over-the-top gold dress sprinkled with the sparkles, scarlet hair piled into an elaborate coif, her Bonnie Raitt-like blond streak swooped up in the front.  Flanked only by a pianist and two backup singers, Faith delivers a stirring performance of "Just Be," the fourth track down on Fall To Grace.   Co-written by Faith, Greg Wells (Adele, Jamie Cullum, Rufus Wainwright) and Aqualung's Matt Hales (Leona Lewis), "Just Be" is as an impassioned lover's plea that hears Faith passionately building her case for a life's worth of love spent with a special someone.
"Let's get old together.  Let's be unhappy forever, cause there's no one else in this world that I'd rather be unhappy with.  Let's be exposed and unprotected.  Let's see one another when we're weak.  Let's go our separate ways in the night like two moths, but know that you're flyin' home to me."
Simply stunning.  "Picking Up The Pieces," Faith's latest single (released May 20th) appears set to make a Top 10 debut  this weekend on the Official Charts, coming in at a respectable #6 on the Midweeks, behind Rita Ora's "R.I.P.," which slipped four spots this week to #5.  The only other new entry ahead of Faith is The Wanted's latest offering, "Chasing The Sun," which is currently sitting pretty at #1.

  1. The Wanted - Chasing The Sun (**NEW ENTRY**)
  2. fun. - We Are Young (featuring Janelle Monae)
  3. Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me Maybe
