Mike Moloney and I were recently approached by Paul Weller about our film 24 Hrs Here. We agreed to let him use part of the film for the lead single on his new album. Have a look at his website for more info, www.paulweller.com
Never one to rest on his laurels, Paul Weller is a musician who is always evolving and on March 26th 2012 the next phase of his evolution begins with the release of 'Sonik Kicks'.
On his eleventh solo album Weller continues to the push the boundaries, looking forward rather than back unlike so many of his contemporaries.
Sample a taster of what's to come right now on www.paulweller.com in the form of album track 'Around The Lake'.
The track is accompanied by a sequence from a short film that Paul is a fan of called '24hrs, Pavey Ark' which was directed by Mike Moloney & John Hooper.
'Around The Lake' is available to download from iTunes, click here to get your copy now.
'Sonik Kicks' features appearances from the likes of Noel Gallagher and Graham Coxon, the full tracklisting is:
2. The Attic
3. Kling I Klang
4. Sleep Of The Serene
5. By The Waters
6. That Dangerous Age
