Paul Weller collaborated with the U.K. band Stone Foundation on their new album Street Rituals, which arrives March 31st. Weller produced the full album, co-wrote two songs, plus contributed guitar, piano, and vocals. The Modfather reveals in a statement:
"These are dark, dark times so I was glad to hear a positive voice and vibrations in the words and a joy in the music...what a pleasure and a privilege it was to work with these fellas.
"It's their best songwriting to date, and I just hope people get to hear it because there are some great tunes and I like the message on the record. I like the social comment, because you have so little of that these days."
The first single from the album features Weller on vocals. Stream the sweet sounds of "Your Balloon Is Rising" down below and find out more/pre-order here.
By the way, this is just a taste of what's to come from Weller in 2017. He composed the soundtrack to the film Jawbone which is due out in February, plus his 13th solo album A Kind Revolution arrives in May. Weller has even reportedly written half of ANOTHER new album (the follow up to A Kind Revolution), which he hopes to have out in 2018 in celebration of his 60th birthday.
