Paloma Faith Unveils New ‘Just Be’ Remix by Shy FX and B. Traits; Single out December 16th

    Paloma Faith | Just Be
    As previously mentioned UK pop chanteuse Paloma Faith‘s next single, “Just Be” will be released December 16th, shortly before she kicks off her 2013 UK/Ireland Tour on January 20th in Belfast. In my last post, I was also buzzing about a new remix by London based drum & bass DJ/producer Shy FX.  Paloma had announced in one of her U.S. tour videos that she was recording new vocals for the mix while in Washington D.C.  Well…that remix has now made it’s way online and you guys can listen to it right here: Just Be (Shy FX & B. Traits Mix)!  

    As I expected, the remix is FLAWLESS.  With a track as delicate as “Just Be,” it’s easy for a dance remix to sound cluttered and overdone.  That is not the case with the Shy FX remix of “Just Be.” The remix preserves the integrity of the original song, turning it into a sure fire dance-floor stunner.  The new vocals are an excellent addition, featuring a whole slew of new ad libs, riffs and all around excitement.

    In addition to the STUNNING Shy FX & B. Traits remix, I discovered a remix by British house music duo, Full Intention on SoundCloud which is pretty fantastic.  I do love a good house remix and Full Intention certainly do a good job of turning “Just Be” from pretty ballad to bangin’ club anthem.  Another remix that’s making it’s rounds online is by isoline (AKA Matt Hope).  Isoline‘s approach is much more chilled and laid back.  Lovely effort, really. I’d be totally satisfied with a remix package that includes all three of these remixes.  Listen to all three BELOW.

    Just Be” is the fourth single taken from Paloma Faith‘s sophomore album, Fall To Grace, which is scheduled for release here in the States on December 4th via Epic Records.  Over in her native UK, Fall To Grace is fast approaching platinum status, and has had a place in the UK Albums Chart top 15 for, going on 25 weeks!

    Check out a list of tour dates for Paloma Faith‘s upcoming UK/Ireland tour and make sure you catch her AGAIN in the New York area when she plays on November 27th at Mercury Lounge in Manhattan and on November 30th at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn.  It looks like Paloma had other dates scheduled in Minneapolis, Milwaukee and Pontiac, Michigan however, at least according to Ticketmaster those dates have been cancelled.  Hopefully her two New York dates aren’t scrapped last minute.

    Pre-order Fall To Grace now (iTunes) and download “Just Be” if you’re in the States (iTunes).  The album is also available to download (iTunes) in the UK.
