The legendary Paul Weller returns with his 13th studio album A Kind Revolution on May 12th. The Modfather's latest creation was written not long after the release of his 2015 album Saturns Patterns, and expands on his distinguished blend of smooth and stylized rock, soul, and jazz. As previously reported, the album includes a duet with Boy George, of which Weller says:
"It's quite housey. George sings the first verse and then he comes in on the chorus. Our voices sound really good together."
Other guests on the ten album include Madeline Bell, PP Arnold, Robert Wyatt and Josh McClory from The Strypes, as well as members of his own band, Andy Crofts, Steve Cradock, Ben Gordelier and Steve Pilgrim.
Two songs from A Kind Revolution debuted this week. Stream "Long Long Road" and "Nova" below:
The standard version of A Kind Revolution features 10 songs; the expanded deluxe edition boast 29 tracks, including instrumentals, alternate versions, and remixes. Check out all the options/formats and pre-order here.
