Paul Weller has unveiled the title track from his upcoming album, ‘Saturn’s Pattern’. Listen below.
The record, which will be released on May 11, was written and recorded at Black Barn Studios in Surrey and produced by Jan Kybert and Weller himself. ‘Saturn’s Pattern’ will be Weller’s 12th album and the follow-up to 2012’s ‘Sonik Kicks’. Musicians on the record include Steve Cradock, Andy Crofts, Ben Gordelier, Steve Pilgrim, Syd Arthur and The Strypes’ Josh McClorey.
The record will be available in CD, special edition CD/DVD, 12-inch vinyl and Deluxe Box Set formats, and leading single ‘White Sky’ – which you can listen to below – is available as a free download with pre-orders of the Deluxe Digital formats.
Weller previously said that ‘Saturn’s Pattern’ is “one of the best things I’ve done”. He added: “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 frontman also told NME that the record “is just bonkers in places” but that “it’s really melodic and there’s great tunes on there”.
The ‘Saturn’s Pattern’ tracklisting is as follows:
‘Going My Way’
‘Pick It Up’
‘I’m Where I Should Be’
‘In The Car…’
‘These City Streets’
