Paul Weller has said that he would "love to work" with Blur's Damon Albarn.

Weller, who headlines London's 100 Club as part of Converse's Represent series of shows tonight (August 1), has said that he hasn't been impressed by many new records recently, but loved Albarn's folk opera Dr Dee.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Weller said: "I'm still going out and buying records, but nothing's blown me away – although I thought 'Dr Dee' was fantastic. I'd love to work with Damon. I'm up for working with anyone if they've got something creative going on."

Weller also gave an update on his work with Miles Kane, who he has been collaborating with, and said that the Last Shadow Puppets man's second album was shaping up nicely. He added: "Miles' new record sounds great. He's got some great tunes that boy."

The Modfather also spoke out about why he rarely headlines festivals: "I don't do many festivals if I can help it," he said. "The weather is always terrible. Latitude was an exception because it was more interesting – TV cameras everywhere, flags waving and all that shite."

Paul Weller released his 11th studio album 'Sonik Kicks' earlier this year. You can watch a video interview with the singer where he discusses the album below.
