Paloma Faith frustrated with second album progress

Paloma Faith has said she is frustrated with the slow progress of her second album, which she is currently recording. She released her debut, ‘Do You Want The Truth Or Do You Want Something Beautiful?’, in 2009.

The singer told Bang Showbiz: “The album’s not finished yet and I’m not sure when it will be. If I had my way it would be out tomorrow, but there are so many other people involved that nothing happens quickly. If you’re in a band in this business, you can group together and make things happen, or stand up for what you really believe in. When you’re on your own it’s much harder. I suppose you have to be hard nosed. I’m not afraid to say what I think, but I tend to back down too often”.

At least some of her frustrations are with her label, Sony Music’s Epic. She continued: “We all have to bend sometimes. Epic [did back] the release of the album’s title track which wasn’t an obvious single, but you definitely have the feeling there’s less time to prove yourself or develop as an artist than you might have on an independent label”.
