Paul Weller will release 'Wake Up the Nation' in the United States on 6/1 via Yep Roc Records.

Hailed by Q Magazine as 'his solo masterpiece,' in their 5-star review, Wake Up the Nation has been ubiquitously praised by the British press. Q goes on to proclaim, "With the exception of Bob Dylan there isn't a single artist living or dead who has managed an album this audacious 30 years plus into a career. Wake Up the Nation is that good!"

Paul is on the cover of this month's MOJO and it seems the glowing media awareness has now migrated to the side of the Atlantic in the way of a feature in the current issue of SPIN alongside Ted Leo who asked Paul to take part in the magazine's April 'Influencers' series with him, showcasing Weller's influence on a younger generation of musicians here in America.

Comments Leo in SPIN, "I was lucky enough to have had people like Paul already make the connections between punk and soul when I started getting into music. That was extremely important to me."

Earlier this year, Paul received the Godlike Genius Award from NME, one of the UK's most coveted musical accolades. On Wake Up, NME says Paul is, "Ballsy, rude and brash…," and that the album, "…spits with fiery life."

Paul will be featured on the BBC's flagship Late Night television show Later with Jools Holland this week as well.
