Thought it would be right to set this up after the new album announcement today! The new album will be called Fall to Grace (out 28th May) and the first single called Picking Up The Pieces will be released a week earlier on May 20. Can't Wait!

Loved her debut, favourites are New York, Smoke & Mirrors, Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful? and Upside Down.

I also look forward to another Jools Holland performance

Loved Upside Down , are there any more of her tracks with the same sound or is that a "one off" ??

Woah. Thought I'd revive this thread. I've wanted to like Paloma's music for a while. My Mum's really into her music at the moment so I bought Do You Want The Truth... today. It's an album I've been meaning to buy for a while. I'd heard a few tracks and liked them

I'd seen Paloma interviewed a few times and I'd seen her on Never Mind The Buzzcocks and really liked her as a person.

Any other fans?

She has the advantage of being a wonderful singer whilst being a very likable person too, I have both her albums and "Upside Down" is still my favourite.

I'm listening to "Do You Want The Truth..." at the moment. It's a fantastic debut.

Her debut is such a good album. I was playing it in my car earlier on.

I'm listening to her second album for the first time in full at the moment (I'd heard bits of it).

The deluxe outsiders' edition of Perfect Contradiction is now out. Contains additional CD with 40 mins of tracks from the BBC Prom. Unmissable!

A Paloma Appreciation thread!!!!!!!

Hello!

I saw her live in Glasgow in November. She hit every note perfectly. I was expecting her to be good, but wow. She blew me away.

Do we know if we're getting a video for 'Leave While Im Not Looking'? I imagine it would be spectacular.

Im so happy with the success she has got with this album, I have loved her since the start!

She's confirmed to be performing at the BRITS.

I really, really, cannot see anyone else beating her in the 'Best female' category. I think she could surpass expectations for 'Album of the year', too!

A Perfect Contradiction is at number 6 in the latest BBC top 40 album chart after 44weeks so you could be right.

Most people a month or two back were saying it would be between...
George Ezra
Royal Blood
Sam Smith
Ed Sheeran
Coldaplay

for the album nominations, but I really see her getting a nomination!

I hope she gets best female though, that would mean a lot to her!

Congrats on her nomination if Jessie Ware has to lose to somebody I'm happy for it to be paloma. As for APC getting a nom for BBA I'm not sure, it's an album I enjoy but nothing special and far from her best. It's a bit pedestrian though if Ed and sam get noms it'll fit in with those two .

I would be happy if Jessie Ware won too, she's truly brilliant.

I hope it's not Ella Henderson though - she's talented but she's not been round long enough for a BRIT award, I don't think. Paloma has worked hard every year with less promotion than Ella and still manages to sell much more!

I think its a dead cert like Ellie last year its just her time. She has been wholly consistent Nd with OLCHLT and changing she has transcended to the mainstream properly at home and abroad. So I think she's deserves it.

She is on Jamie and Jimmy's Friday Night Feast this Friday, Channel 4 8pm. She is cooking Portuguese salt cod a dish from her childhood.

I agree, Ella has to prove herself in the long run, particularly when the time comes for that 'second album'.

Paloma on the other hand has been around for a couple of years now. I first remember seeing her on Jools Holland doing the song, New York. Both she and Paolo stole the show for me on the Hootenanny at the New Year; Ed Sheeran just couldn't compete!
