Paul Weller Releases New Single Ahead Of Summer Tinged Album & Date @ The Brighton Centre

Paul Weller has released new song Village, the second new track to be debuted from his new album On Sunset, which is released next month.

Village is a dreamy and beautiful meditation sung from the decidedly un-rock'n'roll perspective of a man who is entirely happy with his state in life. 

"It's a response to being told that we've all got to explore the Amazon and climb Everest to make our lives complete," says Weller. 

"And there's a guy who says, fuck all that, I've got heaven around me.." 


Village was written by Weller and his long-time producer Jan 'Stan' Kybert. 

The track features Paul's old Style Council mucker Mick Talbot on keyboards.

Paul began working on the forthcoming new album On Sunset very soon after finishing 2018's True Meanings.  


On Sunset features ten classic yet modern Paul Weller songs including masterly pop classics, heart-tugging ballads and occasional touches of experimentalism. 

It's an album that sees Weller taking a rare glance into the rear-view mirror as he speeds into the 2020s.  

Written and recorded at Black Barn Studios in Surrey, On Sunset was produced by Kybert and Paul himself with help from Charles Rees. String arrangements by Hannah Peel. 

As well as digitally, the album is released on CD , Deluxe CD (includes extra tracks), double gatefold vinyl, coloured vinyl and cassette.
