Few artists have had as great an influence on the British music scene as Paul Weller. As frontman of The Jam, he spearheaded the Mod revival in the late ’70s and early ’80s. He scored a string of hits before forming The Style Council. And he followed that with a very successful solo career.
The last two years have seen an incredible creative output from Weller. He’s released no fewer than three new studio albums – all to widespread acclaim.
His wondrous 17th solo album An Orchestrated Songbook was released just a month ago. Recorded with award-winning arranger Jules Buckley and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the album reimagines a selection of his vast catalogue including such classics as ‘English Rose’, ‘Broken Stones’ and ‘Wild Wood’.
An Orchestrated Songbook followed the highly acclaimed Fat Pop: Volume 1 – his second Number One album in 12 months, which followed hot on the heels of the success of 2020’s On Sunset.
