The star, who will release her second studio record Fall To Grace on May 28, admitted that she will only want to perform the new material once fans can sing it back at her.
"I don't like playing new songs before anyone knows the words," Faith told the Daily Star. "The crowds are all serious and listening, paying attention, whereas I like it when they sing along.
"There's no better feeling for a songwriter than having someone sing your lyrics back to you."
Faith recently confessed that she is nervous about the release of her new album, explaining: "I'm a little nervous, in the sense that when I released the first album I had nothing to lose."
The collection's lead single 'Picking Up The Pieces' is available to download now.
