About this item
Paul Weller releases his gorgeous new song “Village” on May 7th. “Village” is the second new track to be debuted from his hotly anticipated new album On Sunset, which released on June 19th (Polydor Records).
“Village” is a dreamy and beautiful meditation sung from the decidedly un-rock’n’roll perspective of a man who is entirely happy with his state in life. “It’s a response to being told that we’ve all got to explore the Amazon and climb Everest to make our lives complete,” says Weller. “And there’s a guy who says, fuck all that, I’ve got heaven around me.”
“Village” was written by Weller and his long-time producer Jan ‘Stan’ Kybert. The track features Paul’s old Style Council mucker Mick Talbot on keyboards.
