reach out and touch faith

Lovely lass, Paloma Faith, returns with "Picking Up The Pieces", the first single from her forthcoming sophomore effort, "Fall To Grace".

Thankfully, it's not a cover of the Average White Band hit. Instead, it's another grand and gorgeous affair accompanied by an equally stylish video.

Paloma gives it some church! Clearly, the label believes in Lady Faith since they splashed some serious cash on the vid.

Great to see Paloma move her image slightly forward as she was in danger of becoming a caricature of herself toward the end of the promotion for her debut elpee, "Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful?" Rather than falling into art deco retro, she's taken some of the elegance from the era, added a dash of 60s swinging London to it and topped it off with some contemporary styling. And I'm sure it's not lost on her fans that the melting wax figure at the end of the video for "Picking Up The Pieces" might be her way of putting her old school Hollywood glamor look behind her.

All in all, it's a strong step forward. With the legendary Nelle Hooper in the producer's chair, "Fall To Grace", which hits the "shops" on May 28, stands to be on of this year's mighty pop releases.
