Paloma Faith wants to record a duet with Jake Bugg after making friends with them when they both appeared on the same TV show

Paloma Faith wants to duet with Jake Bugg.

The 'New York' singer is keen to collaborate with the folk-rock singer, after she was impressed by his performance on UK music TV show 'Later.... With Jools Holland'.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I really want to do a duet with Jake Bugg but I'm just trying to get hold of him. He's quite busy as well, so we're trying to sort it out. Hopefully it will happen.

"I first met him on 'Jools Holland' and then we became friends, I see him quite a lot."

Paloma will be playing at this year's V and T in the Park festivals in the UK, as well as various other events across Europe, and is looking forward to being higher up on the bills than other years, because it means she gets to perform at night.

She added: "I'm looking forward to all my festivals just because it's really euphoric, exhilarating thing to do, particularly at some of the slots I've got because I like performing at night time.

"You get to do magical things with lights and so I'm really looking forward to that. The reason why I like performing live in general is just getting close to the people who listen to my music. That's why I do it."

Paloma has also been sharing her musical talents for charity, playing a stripped back acoustic set to raise money for War Child this weekend.

She said: "Well it's about children and I mean I personally along with a lot of the world humble at the thought of children because they're innocent victims. So it's to do with helping children from around the world sort of rehabilitate, who are victims of war. Kids are always innocent, so as soon as I heard the opportunity was there I was dying to help."

Paloma performed an exclusive set at the first ever American Express Platinum Cashback Gig at the iconic Union Chapel in London yesterday (03.03.12) in support of War Child.
