Paul Weller had decided to leave the indie milieu and jump to Warner Bros. Records/ Parlophone for his new album. Titled  Saturns Pattern, it’s due May 12 and was recorded in Weller’s own Black Barn Studio and produced by Jan “Stan” Kybert (Oasis, Bjork, Massive Attack, etc.). Weller and Kybert have worked together extensively in the past on albums such as Sonik Kicks (2012), As Is Now (2005), Studio 150 (2004) and Illumination (2002). (The new album will be available in a variety of formats: Standard CD, Deluxe CD/DVD set, vinyl album, and Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set with CD/DVD/vinyl album.)

Check the video for lead track “White Sky”:


Saturns Pattern is described as “a strong nine song cycle of futuristic sounds and styles. Drums were recorded by Ben Gordelier, keyboards and backing vocals by Andy Crofts both from Weller’s band, additional guitar parts were contributed by Steve Cradock (Paul Weller Band, Ocean Colour Scene), Josh McClorey (The Strypes), and Steve Brooks, with whom Weller formed the short-lived original line-up of The Jam in 1972. “It’s a little bit of a leap into the unknown really,” says Weller. “I don’t know where it will take me… It’s got a lot of movement to it.  I think that’s it’s going to be a bit of an inspiration to people,” he recently was quoted in Q Magazine (U.K.).
