Paloma Faith has announced a series of UK tour dates for 202013, and a new single ’30 Minute Love Affair’ to be released on August 12.

The song is taken from Paloma’s incredible second album ‘Fall To Grace’ which reached number 2 in the UK albums chart when it was released in May. The album was just beaten to the number 1 spot by Gary Barlow’s Diamond Jubilee record.

’30 Minute Love Affair’ is a sparkling, synth-pop love song in which Paloma recounts the true experience of a fleeting meeting with a busker in London’s Leicester Square when she was 14: “I asked him if he’d be there the next day and he said he would. When I went back he was gone, and I’ve never forgotten it.”

The 2013 dates will be the first full tour of ‘Fall To Grace’, however Paloma is appearing at a series of live events over the summer, including two headline dates at London’s Somerset House on July 17, 18.

Tickets for the 2013 tour are on sale now.
