Paul Weller releases his gorgeous new song Village on a limited 7". Village is the second new track to be debuted from his hotly anticipated new album On Sunset.
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. The flip is a radio edit of Earth Beat.
