Following her performance on Sports Personality of the Year and the release of The Architect – Zeitgeist Edition, Paloma Faith releases her infectious new single ‘Your Ex’.
The song is one of the bonus tracks to be taken from the deluxe edition of her #1 album The Architect, which is also out now on RCA Records and has already sold 400,000+ copies.
Written by Paloma, Thomas Barnes, Benjamin Kohn, Peter Kelleher, Ella McMahon and Phil Cook, and produced by TMS (Little Mix, Jess Glynne, Emeli Sandé) and Phil Cook (Olly Murs, Little Mix, Ellie Goulding), ‘Your Ex’ immediately establishes itself as a pop anthem with it’s contagious piano line and soulful vocal melody.
Listen to ‘Your Ex’ by Paloma Faith on the Shoot Music New Releases Playlist on Spotify.
Lyrically, Paloma’s typically poetic verse captures the overwhelming feeling of jealousy and obsession that is prevalent in the social media age.
“I thought when writing this song that if I told as many people as possible I am addicted to looking at my boyfriend’s ex on Instagram either she would block me and it would stop or I would stop doing it naturally because I was so embarrassed” say Paloma “so far, neither has happened.”
