Enjoying a constant critical high and a never ending creative peak, Paul Weller continues to push the boundaries when he releases his new album Sonik Kicks on March 26th 2012.
The follow up to the Mercury Music Award nominated Wake Up The Nation, this is Paul’s eleventh solo album, and like each of his solo albums, it's his best yet. If you want a taster of what’s to come, head to www.paulweller.com now, where you can check out brand new album track "Around The Lake".
The track has been set to an excellent film sequence from a short film Paul is into called "24hrs, Pavey Ark" directed by Mike Moloney & John Hooper.
Sonik Kicks features appearances from the likes of Noel Gallagher and Graham Coxon. The 14 tracks on the album are:
Green / The Attic / Kling I Klang / Sleep Of The Serene / By The Waters / That Dangerous Age/ Study In Blue / Dragonfly / When Your Garden’s Overgrown / Around The Lake / Twilight / Drifters / Paperchase / Be Happy Children.
Sonik Kicks reveals Paul Weller once again shaking up his palate and stirring his influences anew, mixing pop art punch with soulful communication, jazzy explorations into psychedelia and dub with razor-sharp melodies, abstract soundscapes with clear-eyed forest-folk.
Believers can discover this at The Roundhouse when Sonik Kicks will be performed in full this spring when Weller plays 2 nights on 18th& 19thMarch 2012. Weller is hardly one to want to wait 20 years to be invited to perform his ‘classic’ album, he’d rather do it here and now, no need for nostalgia to play its part.
Support comes from Baxter Dury.
Tickets will go on sale this Friday (25th November)
