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’.
