'Fast Car/Slow Traffic' reunites Paul with Jam bassist Bruce Foxton for the first time on a record since 1983.

“It’s a real London tune. It’s a pretty full on. It was really interesting to hear Bruce playing on it. You can instantly tell it’s him.” Says Paul of the track.

'Fast Car/Slow Traffic' / 'Andromeda' will be released on September 13.

Paul Weller Interview With OnMilwaukee.com!

Weller's Creative Burst Continues With "Wake Up the Nation"

It was 33 years ago today -- well, not exactly TODAY -- that Paul Weller burst upon the British music scene with The Jam, whose debut single, "In the City," was an explosion of punk-infused, mod-rooted rock and roll that was infectious and raucous.

In those years, Weller went repeatedly to the top of the UK charts, setting records at the time with a string of amazing singles and accomplished LPs. Success in America always eluded The Jam, but his next move, The Style Council, scored a top 40 hit here with "My Ever Changing Moods" in 1984.

After a break, Weller returned in 1992 with his self-titled solo record and has now recorded considerably more material as a solo performer than he ever did with either of his bands.

Paul Weller Loves The Zombies' "Odessey And Oracle."

From The BBC:

It is "one of the all time greatest records", according to rock hero Paul Weller. But when The Zombies' psychedelic LP Odessey and Oracle was released in 1968, it virtually sank without trace.

The band had imploded by the time of its release, and the album struggled to compete with releases by acts like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Kinks in that landmark year.

But the psychedelic long player has gradually gathered fans over the years, with Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant, Dave Grohl of Nirvana and Foo Fighters and folk-rock band Fleet Foxes all emerging as big fans.

Here, Paul Weller describes how the band influenced him and the band's Rod Argent says they are finally getting the credit they deserve.

Paul Weller
The Zombies made one of the all-time greatest records in Odessey and Oracle. It came out in 1968 and by the time it had come out I think they had split. No-one bought it at the time. It was a fantastic record, and of all the albums tha…
