Paul Weller is back with new album True Meanings

Paul Weller has announced that his new studio album True Meanings will launch in the coming months.

Weller’s 14th solo album will arrive on September 14 via Parlophone Records and will feature the single Aspects, which he launched back in May to mark his 60th birthday (opens in new tab).

The record, which is described as “a dreamy, peaceful, pastoral set of songs to get lost in” was recorded in just over three weeks at Weller’s Black Barn Studio and features a number of guest musicians.

Those include Rod Argent from the Zombies, folk duo Martin Carthy and Danny Thompson, guitarist Little Barrie, vocalist Lucy Rose and former Oasis guitarist and vocalist Noel Gallagher.

Speaking about Aspects when it was released earlier this year, Weller said: “I don’t know if it’s indicative of the album, but it’s certainly the cornerstone to the record for me. It’s also where I got the title of the album from.”

True Meanings is now available for pre-order. Find details below.

Weller will head out on the road for seven shows later this year in the UK and Europe. He’ll kick off at the Barbican in York on August 23 and finish with a performance at the Theatre Rotterdam on October 6.
