With her acclaimed Number 1 album ‘The Architect’ riding high in the charts and a BRIT nomination for Best British Female, Paloma Faith, has been announced as the first headline act for the Summer Music Saturday at York Racecourse on the 30th June as part of what will be three Music and Racing events in 2018.
Paloma Faith returned to the charts in 2017 with ‘The Architect’, which has sold over 250,000 copies so far and followed the huge success of her 2014 album, ‘A Perfect Contradiction’, which spent 29 weeks in the Top 10 Albums Chart, 66 weeks in the Top 40, and 100 weeks in the Top 200. The new album is currently on course to become her fourth double platinum album in a row – which would make her the first British woman in chart history to achieve this incredible feat!
Equally at home both onstage and in the studio, this show will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the summer season.
Ahead of her visit, Paloma said ;
”I’m really looking forward to playing York Racecourse next summer, it’ll be one of the first chances I’ll get to play tracks from The Architect in the sunshine. I love a day out at the races too so can’t wait for it”
