From the NME.
Paul Weller has announced a new album called ‘Fat Pop (Volume 1)’ – listen to its lead single ‘Cosmic Fringes’ below.
The Modfather released his latest solo record ‘On Sunset’ last summer. Earlier this month, it was claimed by Noel Gallagher that he’d been working on its follow-up at home throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
Weller confirmed that he’ll release the 12-track ‘Fat Pop (Volume 1)’ on May 14 via Polydor. You can pre-order/pre-save it in various formats here.
The musician started recording vocals, piano and guitar for his 16th solo LP on his own during isolation, before sending the material to his core band members (drummer Ben Gordelier, guitarist Steve Cradock and bassist Andy Crofts) who fleshed out the tracks.
Weller then reunited with his band at his Black Barn studio in Surrey to complete the album when COVID restrictions were eased.
‘Fat Pop (Volume 1)’, which boasts a “diverse selection of sounds” and styles, could potentially be followed by a second instalment, according to Weller.
Other song titles include ‘True’, ‘Shade Of Blue’, ‘That Pleasure’ and ‘In Better Times’.

PAUL WELLER On Sunset (2020 UK/EU super limited edition 2-LP Picture Disc set, this format exclusively available online and not in retail stores. Housed inside a double-pocket clear sleeve with large hype sticker and download code included. Fifteenth studio album by the English singer-songwriter. 'On Sunset' is described as 'a soul album. At the same time it's also an electronic album, an orchestral album, an album packed with masterly pop songs and heart-tugging ballads, andanalbum filled with touches of experimentalism.' It's also an album that sees Weller taking a rare glance into the rear-view mirror as he speeds into the 2020s)
