Paloma Faith Releases Powerful Video For Sia-Penned Song ‘Warrior’

Paloma Faith has released the official music video for her latest single ‘Warrior’, out now on RCA. Written by Sia, ‘Warrior’ is a powerful ballad about remaining strong through adversity, and is now accompanied by a moving video directed by Thomas James and featuring many of Paloma’s own role models, friends and ‘Warriors’.

“I’ve always been a fighter and gravity leads other fighters to me.” Says Paloma. “Sometimes I am moved to tears by the power of humanity. Our capacity to fight and to survive astounds me. In this video Thomas James and I asked some incredible people we know or have met who have either fought against all odds for what they believe to be right for the greater good or survived the most profoundly heart wrenching obstacles. The video is meant to be a testament to the human spirit.”

‘Warrior’ impacts August 17th and is the 4th single to be taken from Paloma’s acclaimed smash hit No.1 album ‘The Architect’, which has now gone Platinum, making Paloma the only British female artist apart from Sade to have four Platinum albums in a row.

“I normally won’t sing songs written by other people but when I heard Warrior I was doing some work with Help Refugees and the lyrics rang true to me.” Said Paloma, I haven’t asked Sia what she had in mind but to me it’s about the refugee crisis. I should ask her!”

Following her UK arena tour in March, including a sold out show at the O2 Arena, Paloma has been busy playing dates the length and breadth of the UK this summer with her remaining dates as follows:

Fri 3rd Inverness, Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival
