Paloma Faith Signs with Epic Records in the US; Announces UK/Ireland Tour

Paloma Faith

It was announced yesterday that UK singer/songwriter (and Music Is My King Size Bed favorite) Paloma Faith has signed with Epic Records for the upcoming U.S. release of her sophomore album, Fall To Grace as well as the album's stunning first single, "Picking Up The Pieces."  AMAZING news! A critic's favorite in the UK, Faith is just now starting to gain traction here in America, garnering the attention of Perez Hilton and Vogue Magazine, who made her their 'Artist of the Week.' Definitely a promising sign of things to come for the quirky English chanteuse.

While we don't have any specific release dates as of yet, Paloma has expressed an interest in promoting her music here in America since well before the international release of Fall To Grace.  Just yesterday, Paloma made good on her promise to come to America, Tweeting about some upcoming NYC showcases, followed by a Tweet from Epic Records welcoming faith the the "Epic Family."  Epic then teased the upcoming release of her latest album and lead single.  Epic Records Chairman and CEO Antonio “L.A” Reid seems very excited about his label's latest signee, stating in in the official announcement:
“In an era where authenticity resonates, Paloma is the epitome of soul. It’s an honor for Epic Records to be part of her career in the United States.”
All of this very promising indeed to all us U.S. Paloma "FaithFulls."  Check out the whole Twitter convo BELOW.

While we're not sure when exactly Paloma will embark on her U.S. promotional blitz, my guess is that it would be well before she's sets out on her recently announced UK/Ireland tour.  Kicking off at Dublin Vicar St on January 21st, the (as of right now) eleven-date set ends with a performance at London's HMV Hammersmith Apollo on February 7th.  In addition to her winter tour, Faith is scheduled to perform at the capital's Somerset House this summer with shows on July 17th and July 18th. Snag your tickets HERE

Last month, Faith released lead single, "Picking Up The Pieces," followed by the release of her sophomore album, Fall To Grace on May 28th.  The album went on to debut at #2 on the UK Albums Chart, becoming Faith's highest charting album to date.  According to Faith, the Emil Nava-directed music video for follow up single, "30 Minute Love Affair" just wrapped.  Stay tuned for more information on her new single, as well as her upcoming promotional schedule here in America.
