New Paul Weller Album Coming to U.S. in June
Written by admin on May 18, 2010
Weller’s last CD, 22 Dreams, was a U.K. chart-topper and Wake Up the Nation is being touted by recording company Yep Roc Records as “lean, mean and as uncompromisingly focused as its maker.”
Weller’s solo efforts have been quite eclectic, and fans of his recent work may soon be witness to another side of the new wave icon. Admirers of his classic alternative work will be happy to know that to tracks will feature former Jam bassist Bruce Foxton. Former Electric Light Orchestra drummer Bev Bevan also contributes to the album.
