Paul Weller today gave fans the first taste of his 15th solo album On Sunset in the form of “Earth Beat,” an uptempo number featuring a guest turn by R&B singer Col3trane that previews a record being billed as part soul, part electronic and part orchestral. Hear the song below.
On Sunset, the follow-up to 2018’s stripped-down True Meanings, is due out June 12 on Polydor in the U.K. and Verve Forecast in the U.S. The former leader of The Jam and The Style Council will embark on a 17-date U.K. tour, beginning Oct. 19 in Plymouth and wrapping up with two London shows on Nov. 19 and 20.
