New News – Paul Weller

Rejuvenated songwriting legend Paul Weller has revealed plans to release his new double A-side single ‘Find The Torch, Burn The Plans / Aim High’.

Paul Weller’s career has enjoyed considerable ups and downs. Entering the new Millennium on uncertain territory, a series of label deals and even a covers album seemed to demonstrate that he was unsure how to progress.

Hooking up with producer Simon Dine, the partnership has unleashed a new blast of material from the songwriting legend. Heavy touring saw Paul Weller re-connect with his fan base, while the lavish double album ’22 Dreams’ was given critical plaudits.

Returning this year with his sharp as a tack new album ‘Wake Up The Nation’ the singer is on ferocious form. Reportedly getting engaged to one of his backing vocalists, Paul Weller is in the middle of his best run of form for a decade.

Opening the summer with some ferocious live sets, Paul Weller is set to release his new double A-side single ‘Find The Torch, Burn The Plans / Aim High’.

Taken from his new album, the single will be released on June 14th and will be available digitaly, on CD and two 7″ vinyl records.

Asked about ‘Find The Torch’ Paul Weller claimed that it was inspired by his disgust at the establishment. “Thematically, it ties in with the title track of the album. We’ve got to reclaim our heritage and our culture. Claim it back from the fucking politicians and the establishment. My daughter (Leah) and her mate sang on it too.”

“Aim High was initially one phrase repeated over and over. I hit that falsetto voice, which was nice because I haven’t used it for a long time. Once I had the melody I wrote the words really quickly.”
