BRITISH singing sensation Paloma Faith is set to hit Glasgow in just one week time as she continues to make her way around the UK on a massive arena tour.

The Picking Up the Pieces hitmaker will entertain a huge crowd at the SSE Hydro on Tuesday, March 6.

The announcement of the tour came last year as Faith - one of only two British female artists this decade to have their last three albums go double platinum in the UK - landed her first ever UK number one with album The Architect back in November.

The 36-year-old - who won the BRIT Award for British Female Solo Artist in 2015 following the phenomenal success of her last record, 2014’s A Perfect Contradiction - struck gold with her fourth record, beating both Sam Smith and Morrissey.

The album features an array of acclaimed co-writers, producers and collaborators, including Sia, John Legend, Jesse Shatkin, TMS, Starsmith, Tobias Jesso Jr., Eg White, Rag'n'Bone Man, actor Samuel L. Jackson and journalist and activist Owen Jones.

The album has been lauded for raising social and political questions, and for covering powerful and topical themes, such as motherhood, social anxiety, wealth inequality and technology’s impact on feelings of alienation.

Lead single Crybaby ponders whether war would cease to exist if men successfully dealt with their emotions, as title track The Architect features Faith as Mother Nature, singing to humanity.

‘Guilty’ reflects on the Brexit vote from the perspective of a Leave voter who regrets their choice, while Warrior - written by Sia - looks at the current refugee crisis.

After selling more than 40,000 copies within days, Faith said: “I think what’s been very moving about this process is the amount of people on social media who have been saying ‘Paloma for number one’. It feels really heartwarming.

“My intention for this album is to promote kindness, compassion, empathy and understanding. It’s quite moving that it’s all paid off.”

Faith took a three-year break from the industry before the release of her fourth album and said earlier this month that she would be taking her baby on tour.

She had her first child, with boyfriend Leyman Lahcine, in 2016.
