Mother, actress, singer, songwriter – there’s really not much that Paloma Faith can’t do, and even then it’s likely she’d become the master of any task you set before her.  After a well earned break, Faith has returned with Crybaby, from her upcoming 4th album, The Architect.

In a world of stereotypes, where men have to hide behind strict stoicism, Faith’s Crybaby is a refreshing breather. She has used this song to redefine what it is to be a man, advising you “don’t have to man up, that phrase kind of sucks, let yourself be free.”

In case you were worried, this is far from a tedious lecture.  Despite the title, the music is incredibly playful.  This is a fun song of encouragement and reassurance.  It’s bound to be played on repeat, but it’s such an upbeat track you’ll be happy with the airtime Crybaby deserves.

Baby-brain hasn’t addled Paloma Faith’s talent one bit.  Crybaby is a great start to what will undoubtedly be a fantastic album.
