Paloma Faith releases new single and video, ‘Gold’
The song is accompanied by a riotous video filmed in Hackney, which sees Paloma using an abandoned building site as the stage for a dramatic performance alongside a choir and a host of dancers.
“‘Gold’ is the only song on the album which wasn’t recorded in my basement,” said Paloma. “It was recorded at Steve Mac’s studio, who penned the song with the wonderful Sigrid. As a result it embodies freedom and joy and a celebration of life, perfect escapism for a time when we need to remember we are free spirits. ‘Gold’ is a song about how the spirit conquers everything and whatever you are going through your true virtues are inside you.
“For the music video I was about 2.5 months pregnant and it was a heatwave of 38 degrees…. I still hadn’t told anyone I was pregnant so I had to pretend it was all fine, which would have been ok… if I wasn’t hanging off a giant yellow digger! It was physically demanding, but the people who worked on the video and the other dancers were joyous and kept me so buoyant I didn’t realise until I got home I was shattered!”
Infinite Things was created with long-time and new collaborators including producers Patrick Wimberly and Detonate, songwriters Ed Harcourt, Starsmith and Tre Jean-Marie plus producer and songwriter MNEK and friend Josef Salvat.
Speaking about the album, Paloma said “I’m trying to relinquish the expectation that a lot of people are raised with, that the only good life is a happy one. I don’t think that’s realistic. It’s about the peaks and troughs, because if you didn’t have one you wouldn’t recognise the other.”
Paloma is set to hit the road for a huge 26-date UK tour in autumn 2021, including two nights at London’s iconic Palladium. Tickets are available now via PalomaFaith.com.
