Modfather Paul Weller Returns with New Album, World Tour

Published: 2005-08-24
Former Jam and Style Council frontman Mr. Paul Weller will return to North American shores next month in advance of his brand new album, his seventh solo affair, entitled As Is Now. The album, a follow-up to last year's all-covers record, Studio 150, and his first all-original effort since 2002's excellent Illumination will be released on October 18th in North America, eight days after it becomes available in his native UK.

Prior to the album's release, Weller will set out on a relatively short nine-day tour of the US and Canada (well, Toronto), during which the Weller faithful can expect to hear selections from the Modfather's extensive solo back catalogue as well as the odd Jam and Style Council classic. October, November, and December will find the legend hitting stages in Germany, Scotland, and England.

Recorded in two weeks at pals Oasis' studio Wheeler End, the track list for As Is Now runs as follows:

"Blink & You'll Miss It"
"Paper Smile"
"Come On/Let's Go"
"Here's the Good News"
"The Start of Forever"
"All on a Misty Morning"
"From the Floorboards Up"
"I Wanna Make It Alright"
"Fly Little Bird"
"Roll Along Summer"
"Bring Back the Funk (Pts. 1 & 2)
"The Pebble & the Boy"

Paul Weller's sole Canadian date:

September 22, Toronto, ON - Kool Haus
