UK pop singer Paloma Faith has revealed that she was unhappy with her debut album, claiming she lacked the confidence to tell label bosses how she wanted the record to sound.
The 'New York' singer has told how she allowed herself to be manipulated while recording 'Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful' because she was so thrilled to have a record deal.
"The first time round, I knew what I wanted but I didn't necessarily have the confidence to stick to my guns," said the singer in an interview with the BBC. "There was a certain degree of manipulation because I felt indebted, somehow, to the record label for signing me.
"I was too preoccupied with getting people to understand what I wanted stylistically, so I'd neglect the songwriting. You see, every song was produced by the person who wrote it with me. It was like a compilation. But I wasn't wholeheartedly happy with any of the production on the first record."
Faith is due to release her second album, 'Fall From Grace' on 12 May, 2012.
