Weller

If you can't want for the new Sonik Kicks album, you can get your hands on new Paul Weller material a week early, when a new single is released.


The single is called That Dangerous Age and is out on March 11th on Island Records, a week ahead of the Sonik Kicks album (March 19th). According to the pre-publicity, the single will be sold as a CD digipack, as well as two 7-inch singles and a download of the EP. Unfortunately, there's no details of the extra tracks.

According to Weller, the lead song is about the 'agonies of the frustrated middle-aged wage slave'. He said: 'There was an inference that I was going through a mid-life crises. Which I found really amusing: the clichéd notion of it. And that was the impetus for (the song) even though it isn’t really about that. It’s a bit tongue in cheek, too. I guess it’s also about how society views people of a certain age. For me, does it really matter what age you are? It’s what up there in your soul that matters'.

If you can't wait, Amazon has previews of all the tracks on the album ahead of the launch. Go here to hear them all now. The album, including the limited edition, is listed here.
