British starlet Paloma Faith delivers ‘Guilty’, the second single from her upcoming fourth album ‘The Architect’.
The album campaign hasn’t gotten off to the most auspicious of starts; lead single ‘Crybaby’ failed to fire in the way lead singles past have.
For example, the lead singles from her past two albums have both cracked the top ten in Britain. ‘Crybaby’, however, didn’t, peaking at No.36.
So it’s over to new single ‘Guilty’ to hopefully raise a little more interest in the album before it drops at retailers everywhere on November 17.
This track in parts feels a little like the Bacharach/David classic ‘Anyone Who Had A Heart’. It’s big and bold, but also a little Winehouse-esque, so there’s plenty of familiarity.
The clip is pretty impressive too; with an almost film-like quality, following the story of a young girl and Paloma, who are on the run from the establishment. But there’s a twist in the tale… best you watch to see where it comes in.
