Paul Weller To Wake Up the Nation in June
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."
