Paul Weller on Graham Coxon: ‘I’d love to do a whole album with him’

Frontman says he could do something 'really special' with Blur guitarist

Paul Weller has revealed that he would like to record a full album with Graham Coxon, saying he thinks the pair could come up with something “really special” together.

Weller, who will release his new EP ‘Dragonfly’ later in December, said he’d be interested in recording a full album’s worth of material with the Blur guitarist in a new interview with BBC 6Music. Detailing the times he has worked with Coxon before, Weller said that he would “love” to work on something more comprehensive than previously, where the guitarist has played material on Weller’s solo albums, including this year’s ‘Sonik Kicks’.

I’ve worked a few times with Graham. We did a single together and then he came and played on a track that was on ’22 Dreams’ and then he was on ‘Sonik Kicks’ as well. He plays guitar and organ on ‘Dragonfly’ in fact. I’d love to do a whole album with him, it’s just a matter of getting the time to do it. I think we could do something really special together.

‘Dragonfly’, which is set for release on December 17, will feature songs taken from the recording sessions of Weller’s latest studio album ‘Sonik Kicks’. You can see the video for the title track by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.
