She spent her downtime creating, learning to engineer her own music and just thinking about the world.
The enforced downtime was creatively fruitful and taught her that she had been on a sort of conveyor belt of music and promo.
The lockdown gave her the space to take stock of her frenetic career, and decide what is meaningful to her.
She is emerging from lockdown with a new sense of her priorities which has seen her reconnect with her roots steeped in creativity.
Infinite Things saw Paloma work with a small group of long-time and new collaborators including the producers Patrick Wimberlyand Detonate, songwriters Ed Harcourt, Starsmith, Tre Jean Marie alongside the producer and songwriter MNEK and friend Josef Salvat.
This record is more than an album about relationships. It's a rumination on sickness and loss. It's about finding your way back to romance within a long term relationship.
It was her last album, The Architect, that laid the seeds of change in Paloma's personal and world views:
"I'm coming at politics from the perspective of the common man or woman, observing why people are suffering.
"Each song on the record is about a different pocket of the socio-political world that I've been delving into."
"I wanted to write something more modern. On previous albums I've been more concerned with the past, but now I'm looking forward because of motherhood and wanting to change things for a better future. It's a marriage of old and new."
This is a new Paloma Faith, an artist who has retreated within herself and found not the careful, polished veteran of show business - but the 22-year-old art student being led by her own creativity.
Paloma Faith plays The Brighton Centre on 16th October 2021. her new album, Infinite Things, is released on 13th November 2020. For further info CLICK HERE.
