|Paul WellerSonik Kicks Limited Edition Deluxe CD & DVD Set in Hardback Book
Enjoying a constant critical high and a never ending creative peak, Paul Weller continues to push the boundaries with his forthcoming new album Sonik Kicks.
The album is the follow up to the Mercury Prize Award nominated Wake Up The Nation and is also Paul’s eleventh solo album. Once again, it's his best yet. For fans eager to hear a taste of what’s to come, Paul’s website previewed the
first single “Around The Lake” in late November of last year at: paulweller.com
The track is set to an excellent sequence from a short film called '24hrs, Pavey Ark' directed by Mike Moloney & John
Hooper which Paul is massively into. 2012 will also mark two important anniversaries for Paul Weller. In 1977 (35 years ago) The Jam burst on to the music scene with their debut album In The City, which without question was one of the most important punk albums to ever be released. Since then Weller consistently changed and evolved his sound through his work with The Style Council and as a solo artist. It was 20 years ago in 1992 when Weller released his self-titled first ever solo album.
With Sonik Kicks Paul Weller once again shakes up his palate and stirs his influences anew. He mixes pop art punch with
soulful communication; jazzy explorations into psychedelia and dub with razor-sharp melodies and abstract soundscapes
with clear-eyed forest-folk.
