Paul Weller has released the sixteenth studio album of his prolific solo career today – have a listen on New Music Friday right here.
Opportunity knocked for Weller when a cancelled tour gave him the unexpected free time to dip back into an arsenal of song ideas which had been stored on his phone, Fat Pop (Volume 1) eventually put together with his band at Black Barn studios.
If there’s anything left on the phone, there’s more time still to find it after The Jam frontman’s UK tour was rescheduled again, this time to March and April next year.
“Due to ongoing uncertainty through the pandemic, the decision has been made to reschedule Paul’s UK June/ July Summer 2021 tour to March/ April 2022,” a statement read.
“If you currently hold a ticket, keep this, as it will remain valid for the new date. Please note that November/ December 2021 tour remains the same.”
“For any customers who are unable to attend the new dates in 2022, you should seek a refund from your original point of purchase.”
