Paloma Faith celebrates first UK No.1 album with ‘The Architect’
Paloma Faith has scored her first UK No.1 with her fourth album The Architect.
The Architect features an array of acclaimed co-writers, producers and collaborators including Sia, John Legend, Jesse Shatkin, TMS, Starsmith, Tobias Jesso Jr., Eg White, Rag’n’Bone Man, actor Samuel L. Jackson and journalist and activist Owen Jones.
“What’s been overwhelming about this victory is the determination, loyalty and help of my amazing fans, friends and family. I’d be nothing without them. It’s amazing to be four albums in and have my first No.1,” Paloma said. “It’s a testament to hard work! I’m not good at celebrations, but I already have a babysitter booked for Saturday night anyway, so I’ll definitely be doing something!”
