The discography of English singer and songwriter Paloma Faith consists of three studio albums, sixteen singles (plus seven as a featured artist) and eighteen music videos. Faith made her debut in September 2009 with the studio album Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful?, which peaked at number nine in the United Kingdom and was later certified double-platinum. Its first two singles, "Stone Cold Sober" and "New York", both peaked within the top twenty in the United Kingdom. The album spawned three more original singles: "Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful?", "Upside Down" and "Smoke & Mirrors". Faith re-released "New York" featuring Ghostface Killah in August 2010.[1]

Faith released her second album, Fall to Grace, on 28 May 2012. It was preceded by the single, "Picking Up the Pieces", which peaked at number 7 in the UK. "30 Minute Love Affair", "Just Be", "Black & Blue" and "Never Tear Us Apart" were all released as singles from Fall to Grace, the latter of which, a cover of the original by INXS, became Faith's fourth single to chart in the top 20 in the UK.

Faith's third studio album A Perfect Contradiction was released in 2014.[2][3] "Can't Rely on You" was released as the album's lead single and charted at number 10 in the UK. This was followed by Faith's most successful single to date, "Only Love Can Hurt Like This", which peaked at number 6 in the UK (her highest charting single within the UK) and also reached the summit of the Australian (ARIA) music charts. This marked the first time that two successive singles by Faith charted within the UK top 10. "Trouble with My Baby" and "Ready for the Good Life" were also released as singles from A Perfect Contradiction, the latter of which being from the repackaged Outsiders' Edition of the album.
