Paul Weller has announced a UK tour beginning in March next year.

Weller released his twelfth solo record ‘Saturns Pattern’ last year. The record featured a collaboration with The Future Sound of London’s Garry Cobain and Brian Dougans. It reached No. 2 in the UK albums chart.

NME‘s Rhian Daly gave the album 3 and half stars, writing in her review that “Weller’s promise of sonic surprises holds true”.

Last month, two of Weller’s self-titled solo debut and 1997 album ‘Heavy Soul’ were reissued on vinyl for the first time in 20 years.

It’s expected that Weller’s albums ‘Heliocentric’ and ‘Illumination’ from 2000 and 2002 respectively will also become available on vinyl again early in 2017.

Weller is continuing to work on the soundtrack to boxing movie Jawbone, starring Ray Winstone, Michael Smiley and Ian McShane. Weller’s first film soundtrack, it’s expected to be released alongside the film in 2017.
