Paloma Faith album 'inspired by cinema'

The songs on Paloma Faith's new album were inspired by individual films, the singer has revealed.

'Fall To Grace' is co-produced by Jake Gosling, fresh from success with Ed Sheeran, and Nelle Hooper, who has worked with Bjork and Madonna.

Faith described herself as a film buff, and said that cinema served as an inspiration for the album.

"Most songs have kind of a homage to them," she said.

"My favourite film director is a Chinese film director called Wong Kar-wai, and he makes really beautiful, really romantic films about love and lost love, but the way it all looks is so classy. He's had a massive influence on me.

"I really like that film 'Drive', and I think this single, '30 Minute Love Affair' is sort of inspired, production-wise, buy the soundtrack of that.

Her new single is an Annie Lennox style synth-pop track and draws on a fleeting moment with a London busker when she was a teen.

"It was best when we left it / I'll never forget it," she said.
