Paul Weller’s hotly anticipated new album, Saturns Pattern, will be released on 11th May. Before that, however, the title track off the album will drop as a single. Check it out via the Youtube embed above.
“Saturns Pattern” the single will be released on May 10th as a 2-track download, followed on May 11th by a 7” vinyl. The second track / B-side is “Sun Goes” which does not appear on the new album.
The press release tells us the single “Saturns Pattern” has been written by Paul with the music co-written by regular sound-desk collaborator Jan ‘Stan’ Kybert. Contributing to “this bright and breezy mod-sermon that slips off into a mighty reprise” are Paul’s touring band compadres Ben Gordelier and Andy Crofts (also from The Moons) on drums and keyboards respectively, with Weller band drummer Steve Pilgrim popping up on ear-catching backing vocals.
“Apparently it’s some kind of wind on the north side of Saturn which created a hexagonal shape” says Paul when asked about the title’s meaning. Ergo, the sleeve of the album illustrates this.
About the album we’ve already been told:
“The album “Saturns Pattern” is released on May 18th on Parlophone. “Saturns Pattern” is an album that will make the summer days seem even longer, but will also heat up the coldest winter’s night. It’s an album aglow with warmth and passion. It’s an album of deep English soul and heart, one that makes you want to fling open the doors and commune with your fellow man and neighbour. It’ll make you feel like dancing when you’re lying down and make you ponder deeply even when you’re grooving to it, lost in melody and rhythm. It’s deep. It’s heavy. It’s soulful. It’s got some very catchy tunes.”
