Paloma Faith announces new album ‘The Architect’ and arena tour
Paloma Faith has announced her fourth album The Architect, to be released on November 17th via RCA Records, along with a UK and Ireland arena tour in 2018.
Following the double-platinum success of her previous three albums, The Architect features an array of acclaimed co-writers, producers and collaborators, including Sia, John Legend, Rag’n’Bone Man and actor Samuel L. Jackson.
Paloma explores both personal and political themes on the album, commenting: “The Architect is a social observation record. […] On previous albums I’ve been more concerned with the past, but now I’m looking forward because of motherhood and wanting to change things for a better future.”
The new dystopian-themed video for the track ‘Crybaby’ is also released today. It is the first single from The Architect, which is now available to pre-order in standard and deluxe editions.
Following the album release, Paloma will embark on a full UK and Ireland arena tour next year. Comprising fourteen dates and kicking off on March 2nd, the tour will cover venues including London’s O2 Arena and Manchester Arena.
