Paloma Faith Is "Ready for the Good Life" on Feel-Good Funk Single

Paloma Faith had us groovin' with her Pharrell-produced single "Can't Rely on You" in January. Now, the British soul singer is back with another funky, feel-good tune.

"Ready for the Good Life" is the latest offering from the "Black and Blue" songstress. There's a '60s-funk, Aretha Franklin-like sound to this new joint that's modernized with heavy beats and reverb-heavy vocals—reminiscent of how Amy Winehouse made her old-school sound appeal to young listeners. And like those two aforementioned divas, Paloma's big vocals soar soul-sister style over this big brassy affair.

"Ready for the Good Life" is lifted off of the singer's new album A Perfect Contradiction, which will get its stateside release next week after peaking at No. 2 and going platinum in the U.K. earlier this year. While Paloma has yet to heavily impact the charts across the pond, if people are itching for a feel-good jam to sink their teeth into, well, look no further.
