Paloma Faith compromised artistic vision with debut album
Stylish songstress Paloma Faith has admitted that she wasn't at all happy with her debut album.
The 'Stone Cold Sober' singer told BBC News that while working on her first album, she felt as though she compromised her artistic vision because she was "indebted, somehow, to the record label for signing me":
"The first time round, I knew what I wanted but I didn't necessarily have the confidence to stick to my guns. There was a certain degree of manipulation because I felt indebted, somehow, to the record label for signing me."
"I was too preoccupied with getting people to understand what I wanted stylistically, so I'd neglect the songwriting. You see, every song was produced by the person who wrote it with me. It was like a compilation. But I wasn't wholeheartedly happy with any of the production on the first record."
Faith is set to unveil her sophomore record, 'Fall To Grace', on May 28 and added that she spent more time focusing on the structure of her songwriting to produce a really organic and honest body of work:
"On this record, I wrote the songs for the songs' sake. I wrote on piano and guitar, and I totally focused on the structure and the melody."
