Paul Weller has unveiled a new video taken from his album, Saturns Pattern.
The clip is for “Pick It Up”, which will be released as a single on December 18th.
Talking about the song, Weller explains: “I was trying to get a Meters vibe to it. Stan (the producer) had a drum loop and I put a funky guitar on it and that was all we had for a while. Eventually we pieced it all together. “Whatever shatters pick it up”: pretty straight-forward message.”
The video for “Pick It Up” features Martin Freeman performing some rather surreal DIY in an orange jumpsuit and wielding a chainsaw. The video has been difrected by Ben Smallwood.
“Pick It Up” will be released on 7” vinyl and as a 2-track Download / Stream, backed by a previously unreleased Dub Mix. A special 7” bundle via paulweller.com includes an exclusive bonus 7” including the previously unreleased track “On Days Like These” b/w “Praise If You Wanna” which was previously only available on Japanese formats of the Saturns Pattern album.
