Paul Weller has a book out in September – and it’s called Suburban 100.
I received a sampler of it in the post yesterday (pictured right) and some information on the title. Basically, it’s a lyrics book, with Weller picking his 100 favourite from all eras, all arranged thematically and with each featuring a "commentary" of sorts by the man, putting each in context.
It will be available in hardback with 256 pages and a specially commissioned cover by Sir Peter Blake. The sampler is certainly interesting – especially the words of description on the songs featured in it. I’m guessing the finished article will be quite an impressive thing – very "coffee table" too!
It’s available from Thursday 6th September, with a recommended price tag of £17.99.
