Paloma Faith's 'Contradiction' finally gets Stateside release

Paloma Faith will release her third album, "A Perfect Contradiction," stateside on Oct. 7. 

The album hit No. 2 when it was released in the UK on March 10 and hasn't left the UK Top Ten since: it is the UK's third biggest selling album of 2014.

Lavish ballad "Only Love Can Hurt Like This" will be the first U.S. single and it impacts Adult Top 40 and Adult Contemporary radio on July 14; available at all digital retailers on July 15.

Written by Grammy-winning songwriter Diane Warren "Only Love Can Hurt Like This" is the biggest hit of Paloma's career to date. The video has already surpassed 3 million VEVO views  

The video for Paloma's next UK single, "Trouble With My Baby," has also premiered on VEVO:

The highly-anticipated follow up to Paloma Faith's double-platinum US debut, 2012's "Fall To Grace," "A Perfect Contradiction" features contributions from Pharrell Williams, John Legend, Raphael Saadiq, Diane Warren, Plan B, Stewart Matthewman and Mr Hudson.

Many of the collaborators actively courted Paloma.

"A Perfect Contradiction" marks a change in sound for Paloma, who explains, "Its tone is the very opposite of what the last album was. There are a couple of melancholy moments, sure, but it's much more a 'if it's all gone to shit, fuck it, let's have a dance' kind of record."

upbeat album shows influences as diverse as classic Stax, Phil Spector,'60s girl groups, '70s disco and early '80s soul. 

"I've been reflecting on things that have been tough, but I'm almost celebrating that," says Paloma. "If you haven't been to the bottom, you wouldn't be able to recognise how it feels to feel really amazing, after all."
