Paul Weller Premieres "White Sky" Music Video, Announces North American Tour

Paul Weller will release a new studio album, Saturns Pattern, May 12 via Warner Bros./Parlophone.

The album was recorded in Weller's own Black Barn Studio and produced by Jan "Stan" Kybert (Oasis, Bjork, Massive Attack, etc.).

Weller and Kybert worked together on Sonik Kicks (2012), As Is Now (2005), Studio 150 (2004) and Illumination (2002).

Saturns Pattern features a nine-song cycle of futuristic sounds and styles. The album features Ben Gordelier (drums), Andy Crofts (keyboards, backing vocals) and Steve Cradock (guitar). Other guests include guitarists Josh McClorey of the Strypes and Steve Brookes, with whom Weller formed the short-lived original lineup of the Jam in 1972.

"It's a little bit of a leap into the unknown really," Weller says. "I don't know where it will take me ... It's got a lot of movement to it. I think it's going to be a bit of an inspiration to people." You can check out one of the tracks, "White Sky," below.
