Sonik Kicks (Heavyweight 180-gram vinyl W/Exclusive Artwork Print) (1xLP)
Released: March 19, 2012
Release InfoThe Vinyl Factory and Island Records present a deluxe gatefold vinyl edition of Paul Weller's new album, Sonik Kicks.
Enjoying a constant critical high and a never ending creative peak, Paul Weller continues to push the boundaries when he releases his new album Sonik Kicks on 19 March 2012. Released on Island Records, Sonik Kicks is the follow up to the Mercury Music Award nominated Wake Up The Nation. This is Paul’s eleventh solo album, and like each of his solo albums, it's his best yet.
Recorded in Weller’s own Black Barn Studios in Ripley, Surrey, with co-producer Simon Dine and trusted engineer Charles Rees, Paul enlisted musician friends such as Noel Gallagher, Graham Coxon and Aziz Ibrahim to help out.
Sonik Kicks reveals Paul Weller once again shaking up his palate and stirring his influences anew, mixing pop art punch with soulful communication, jazzy explorations into psychedelia and dub with razor-sharp melodies, abstract soundscapes with clear-eyed forest-folk.
