Paul Weller Shares New Song Earth Beat From Upcoming Album 'On Sunset'

Wednesday, 18 March 2020 Written by Jon Stickler

Paul Weller has shared a new song.

Earth Beat builds on a steady electronic rhythm and marks one of Weller's most drastic stylistic changes to date. Among the synthy flourishes, it features guest vocals from the US-born singer Col3trane and British folk trio the Staves.

The single is the first to come from the Modfather's upcoming LP, 'On Sunset', out on June 12 through his new label home Polydor. He said:

"Earth Beat comes from a track that Jim Jupp had done as Belbury Poly on his label GhostBox. I’m a big fan of that label. I think the track was called The Willows. I started singing this song over the top of it, and came up with the bass riff as well and the guitar riff – just singing over the top of Jim’s original track. Then I got in touch, asked if I could try and develop the track and it rolled on from that." 

The prolific singer-songwriter will support the follow-up to 2018's 'True Meanings' and 2019's 'Other Aspects, Live At The Royal Festival Hall' with an autumn UK tour.

Weller also aims to span the UK and Europe this spring and summer — unless his plans get derailed by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
