Paul Weller has come together with DJ Keb Darge to release a compilation called 'Lost & Found; Real R'N'B & Soul'.

The double album will feature forgotten soul tracks from the '50s and '60s, and will be released on January 18 next year.

Darge has picked the songs on the 'A' side of the record, while Weller has chosen the tracks for the 'B' side.

In the liner notes for the record, Darge writes about how he first met Weller in a urinal at a birthday party for Weller's sister Nicky's boyfriend.

he said: "Paul walked in as I was relieving myself and said he was enjoying the tunes. I later found out from Nicky that he was also an avid collector, and had been for as long as myself."
