Paul Weller streams new album Saturn’s Pattern

Paul Weller will release his 12th solo album Saturn’s Pattern next week.

The album, currently available to stream on The Guardian, is his first in three years, following 2012’s Sonik Kicks.

‘It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done,’ the (modest) ex-Jam man said about the album, which includes collaborations with similarly indie buddies: Ocean Colour Scene’s Steve Cradock, The Strype’s Josh McClorey and The Moons’ Andy Croft.

Weller recently gave his opinions on Blur (‘Have you heard [their] new album? It’s their best yet’) and Oasis (‘I prefer Noel’s solo stuff now’) before claiming that ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams is ‘one of the greatest records I’ve ever heard.’

Saturn’s Pattern takes Weller in a more soulful direction, blending gospel choruses with jazz riffs in a record he refuses to be humble about, claiming: ‘I can't compare it to any of my other albums. I think it's different not just for me, but different from what else is around.’

Before you race over there, check out the StraightFace/Young Fathers remix of 'Saturns Pattern' below, featuring Leith Congregational Choir.

Saturns Pattern is released 18 May.
