Last night I caught Paloma Faith’s Glastonbury set on BBC4, and thought she sounded fantastic… while also looking super-foxy in her stage outfit, as you can see! She seemed to be enjoying herself too, shaking her booty and jiving across the stage with her back-up singers.
It’s always great to hear Faith belting out her own tracks, of course, but the highlight of the show for me had to be her cover version of Jimi Hendrix’s “Purple Haze”! In the introduction Faith claimed that she’d been listening to the song a lot recently as inspiration for her next album… and I know she was only joking, but I’d love to see her put out a harder/heavier record sometime, because she really rocked this tune!
If nothing else, this show reminded me that I should make more of an effort to tune-in whenever Faith appears on TV… she’s easily the most entertaining and adorable pop-star we have.
