After her third album, A Perfect Contradiction, entered the charts at #2 regardless of tough competition, Paloma Faith has revealed she is lifting 60s inspired ballad ‘Only Love Can Hurt Like This’ as the second single. It is scheduled for release May 12th. On top of this, the lavish pop star has announced new UK dates for an October/November tour.

Fans who are keen to snap up tickets for the arenas and concert halls near them will be pleased to know tickets go on sale April 4th at 10am. Early information indicates that tickets will range from £30 to £45 depending on city and venue and, with festival appearances booked for this Summer, they look set to sell well already. Faith’s previous tours have taken her to parts of the UK and North America but the first leg of this Autumn 2014 tour promises to boast her biggest audiences to date.

A Perfect Contradiction was well received by fans and critics alike, hailing it “upbeat” and “consistent” compared to her previous releases. Lead single, Pharrell produced ‘Can’t Rely On You‘ debuted at #10 in the Singles Chart and has gone on to become an iconic Paloma single. Offering up a different, more familiar, side to the artist, Faith has chosen ‘Only Love Can Hurt Like This’ as the follow up, a melancholic melodramatic retro bathed ballad. It’s a far cry from the previous single but highlights her versatility and adaptability as an artist.

Paloma is set to visit over 20 UK cities across the two months after her Bestival headline slot. Dates are as follows:
