Paul Weller thinks his new album is "bonkers".

The 'Changingman' hitmaker is delighted with forthcoming LP 'Saturn's Pattern' and its futuristic sound, admitting the tracks he has recorded are a "leap into the unknown" for him as they are so different to anything else he has done.

He said: "We've gone into the future. We've got this 21st century music and I think that it's going to be a bit of an inspiration to people.

"It's just bonkers in places but it's really melodic, there's great tunes on there.

"It's a little bit of a leap into the unknown really. I don't know where it will take me, I have no idea.

"I wouldn't say it's dance because I wouldn't do a dance record as such, but it's got a lot of movement to it. It's gone past my expectations in a way."

The 56-year-old rocker also hit out at other musicians of a similar age who are "stuck in a rut" and refuse to experiment with their sound.

He told NME magazine: "I don't understand people when they get to a certain age and they're just kind of happy with what they know.

"It does involve taking a few risks and a few chances and sometimes those risks aren't popular with people or fans or whatever, but that's a chance you take, as opposed to just making the same records year after year.

"I've probably got more in common with a lot of younger bands than my so-called contemporaries, who all just seem stuck in a rut and doing the same thing."
