Paul Weller's new single, Green, is the opening track on his new studio album, Sonik Kicks, which was released on March 19th. Sonik Kicks will be released in the US on March 27th on Yep Roc Records. Following on from his string of dates at the Roundhouse, Paul will play two dates in New York in May, before playing three dates in the UK in June and July.
The video for Green was directed and animated by Ruffmercy - aka Russ Mercy. It features fast and furious animated designed to make your eyeballs hurt. It is a fitting video for the psychedelic song but it not suitable for epileptics.
Sonik Kicks has received critical acclaim upon its release. In addition, Blur's Graham Coxon and Noel Gallagher both make guest appearances on the album. 2012 is shaping up to be a good year for Paul - affectionately known as the Modfather. As well as the release of Sonik Kicks, the follow up to 2010's Mercury Prize nominated Wake Up The Nation, 2012 also marks 35 years since The Jam formed in 1977 and twenty years since the release of Paul's debut eponymous solo album in 1992.
