Pop superstar Paloma Faith is back, returning with the unapologetic ‘How You Leave a Man’, a zero-tolerance barn-burner about not sticking with the monotony of domesticity, wherein she suggests packing your bags and driving off into the sunset, ideally accompanied by violins and a distorted guitar solo.
Since the release of her last album ‘Infinite Things’ in 2020, Paloma split from her partner of nine years and father to her two children. As documented in the acclaimed 2021 BBC documentary, As I Am, which showed the brutal realities of being a mother and a pop star, the challenges of being a single mother and a pop star are even starker.
Paloma’s ferocious sixth album, ‘The Glorification of Sadness’, is a deeply personal record that turns over these feelings by taking a chronological journey through the cracking of an adult relationship, and with it a family. There are no conclusions, just empathetic questions from an artist obsessed with interrogating the status quo and upending assumptions. (Plus one petulant rager called, brilliantly, Eat Sh*t and Die.)
