Paloma Faith is back after the success of 2014s, A Perfect Contradiction, with her glossy new single, “Crybaby” – Oh, and she’s had a child in the mean time!
Faith may be yet to break the States, but over here in the U.K, the singer-songwriter has wielded three consecutive double-platinum selling albums and a plethora of iconic singles – “Only Love Can Hurt Like This” being the top seller.
“Crybaby” is the lead track from her upcoming fourth album, The Architect, and it’s quite the lead!
The soulful bop is anthemic and production-wise, takes the track back a few decades to the disco era, while sounding totally current – and of course, Faith’s vocals are impressive as ever!
The highlight of the track is, in fact, it’s serious lyrics – not that you’d tell from the melody how serious.
Faith states in the press release that; “the lyrics are a conversation between a man and I, and the song questions whether global conflicts would cease to exist if men successfully dealt with their feelings” – we all know men turn to fighting instead of talking.
We are more than excited to see what Faith’s new era has to offer us, and if the rest of the album is as good as its lead, we’re in for a treat.
