Paul Weller has reunited with The Jam's bass player Bruce Foxton.

Speaking to NME.COM, Weller revealed that his old bandmate plays bass two songs on his forthcoming new album 'Wake Up The Nation'.

"It came about because we had both lost loved ones last year," Weller explained. "He lost his wife at the early part of the year, and I lost my dad, and it opened up a bit of a dialogue, and it seemed like a nice thing to do at the time. In fact it was a wonderful thing."

Weller is preparing to release 'Wake Up The Nation', which also features a collaboration with My Bloody Valentine's Kevin Shields, on April 12. It's the follow-up to 2008's '22 Dreams'.

The new album's tracklisting is:

'Moonshine'
'Wake Up The Nation'
No Tears To Cry'
'Fast Car / Slow Traffic'
'Andromeda'
'In Amsterdam'
'She Speaks'
'Find The Torch, Burn The Plans'
'Aim High'
'Trees'
'Grasp And Still Connect'
'Whatever Next'
'7&3 Is The Strikers Name'
'Up The Dosage'
'Pieces Of A Dream'
'Two Fat Ladies'
