Paul Weller has given us new details about his new record ‘Saturnus’ Pattern and announced the dates of his nest British arena tour.
The new Weller album is the successor of ‘Sonik Kicks’ from the year 2012 and will be the 12e record of the “Modfather”. ‘Saturn’s Pattern’ will be released on May 11th, is written and recorded in the Black Barn Studios and produced by Jan Kybert and Weller himself. There has been some surprising collaborations in making this album, Weller has shared the studio with among others Steve Cradock, Andy Crofts, Ben Gordelier, Steve Pilgrim, Syd Arthur and The Strypes gitarist Josh McClorey.
Weller told earlier this year that ‘Saturn’s Pattern” is very different. “I can’t compare it to any of my other albums. I think it’s different not just for me, but different from what else is around.” The former Jam singer said the following about the record “It’s just bonkers in places but it’s really melodic, there’s great tunes on there. It’s a little bit of a leap into the unknown, really. I don’t know where it will take me, I have no idea. I wouldn’t say it’s dance because I wouldn’t do a dance record as such, but it’s got a lot of movement to it. It’s gone past my expectations, in a way.”
The album will be released on CD, special edition CD/DVD, 12-inch vinyl and a Deluxe Box Set.
Tracklist of the CD will be:
Going My Way
Pick It Up
I’m Where I Should Be
In The Car…
These City Streets
