Pop chanteuse Paloma Faith is coming to the Ipswich Regent this summer, we can reveal.

Hackney-born Faith’s debut album Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful? sold more than half a million copies, spawning hit singles Stone Cold Sober, New York, Do You Want the Truth Or Something Beautiful? and Upside Down.

It earned Faith a nomination for Best British Female at the Brit Awards and the honour of closing the 2011 ceremony singing with Cee-Lo Green.

The new album is out May 28 and has been produced by Nellee Hooper, who has worked with Bjork, No Doubt, Massive Attack and Madonna; along with Jake Gosling, who has worked with Suffolk’s own Ed Sheeran.
