Paul Weller has today announced details of new album 'More Modern Classics' - a collection of tracks taken from Paul's albums of the last 15 years of his solo career.
The album also contains new track, 'Brand New Toy' which will be released in time for Record Store Day. It premiered on BBC Radio 2 this morning.
Paul has today also announced that he'll be playing two very intimate live shows in May - the locations and dates are yet to be unveiled, but fans can gain access to an exclusive pre-sale when they pre-order 'More Modern Classics' on the official Paul Weller Store here
‘More Modern Classics’ is the long awaited follow up to 1998’s “Modern Classics” which showcased the first part of Paul Weller’s highly successful solo career. This album confirms Weller’s status as the most resilient survivor from punk’s class of 76 and outclassing and outperforming many of his earlier and later years’ contemporaries. It showcases his continuing progression as an artist, never afraid to take chances, move forward and buck trends – always staying fresh and transcending the zeitgeist. More Modern Classics continues to serve as a reminder of his wide range and gift for melody and song writing.
Paul Weller's two very unique & intimate live shows in mid May will see him perform with his full band at two venues in London.
