Paloma Faith is no stranger to odd antics, so her choice to strip off - and sit on a bare wood floor - in her latest video is definitely one of the least strange things she's done.

The video for her latest track, 'Just Be', shows scenes of the singer sat discreetly on a floor singing interspersed with a story about two fighting lovers. There's also a love scene in which Paloma's onscreen boyfriend takes her dress off. It all gets a bit heated...

Paloma has described the song as 'more honest' than other love songs, which are about staying in love forever - while this one focuses on how annoying someone else can be.

She says, as quoted by The Sun, "It's supposed to be a realistic love song for real lovers.

"It's saying, 'He gets on my nerves, but I love him.' I find that more endearing than, 'There's no one out there but him.' That seems naive.

"I have a lot of admiration for people who've been in relationships a long time, married for years. This is a more knowing take on romance."

Paloma went on to talk about her own lovelife as inspiration for the clip, especially as she split from her long-term boyfriend last year.

She added, " I've just split up with my boy so I'm free, single and ready to mingle! I'm not looking for a new boyfriend as I'm just enjoying taking a few lovers.

"My assistant calls them 'sex deliveries'. I'm a serial monogamist and the longest time I'm had between relationships since I was 13 years old has been six months.

"I'm trying my best but it's proving very difficult for me as I fall in love very quickly. My mum keeps questioning me about who I am texting!"
