Paloma Faith returns with her new single, “Can’t Rely On You,” as Pharrell assumes writing and production duties to bring a grooving backdrop to the London-born singer’s soulful rebuke.
The video opens with the lingerie clad, fiery-haired singer reflecting on love and loss in Italian whilst stroking a bare-chested man in bed; Everybody leaves. People come and go. Don’t worry. Love is loss and loss in love. The space that was you will be filled. Your lines will be read by someone else. They just might not sound as good. But when the curtain rises, I’ll be standing there facing the crowd. Artistic scenes ensue to illustrate her point.
This is just a beginning, the video promises at its end, and “Can’t Rely On You” certainly captures our attention for what may well turn out to be a very interesting new project and shift in direction from Paloma Faith this year. Following her BRIT Award nominated Fall To Grace (2012), her third album A Perfect Contradiction is set for release on March 3rd – with the deluxe edition now available to pre-order via Amazon.
