Paul Weller has announced that his 14th solo album, True Meanings, will be released on September 14.
The press release describes it as “an album characterised by grandiose-yet-delicate, lush orchestration… A dreamy, peaceful, pastoral set of songs to get lost in”.
Special guests include Rod Argent of The Zombies, folk legends Danny Thompson and Martin Carthy, Lucy Rose, Little Barrie and Noel Gallagher. Lyrics to three of the songs were written by Erland Cooper from Erland & The Carnival and another by Conor O’Brien of Villagers.
It includes the song “Aspects” that was released to mark Weller’s 60th birthday in May.
