“This is as close as we’re going to get this year to playing live and for us to play to people. For all of us to get back together was such a joy, and I didn’t realise how much I’d missed it until we started playing together again” – Paul Weller
Mid-Sömmer Musik’ – A Paul Weller Live Special is an up close and personal exclusive performance recorded last August, during the peak of te heatwave, at his Black Barn Studios in Surrey. Available globally on November 12th (8pm GMT), this is an hour of beautifully shot footage of Paul and his band peppered with candid fly-on-the-wall moments and reflections from Paul himself.
Featuring the cream of the crop from the recent No 1 album “On Sunset” and 2018’s “True Meanings, “Mid-Sömmer Musik” also includes brand new never-before-heard tracks. The new songs are likely to feature on Paul’s next album which he started writing and recording during lockdown.
With two UK tours postponed due to the current pandemic, Paul was understandably getting itchy feet, eager to get back on the road. “I wanted to play the new stuff because I’m so into it” Paul said. “It’s so sad we couldn’t play anything from On Sunset this year, I was really looking forward to playing that live”. So Paul rounded up his full band (Steve Cradock, Andy Crofts, Steve Pilgrim, Ben Gordelier and Tom Van Heel) to put together this exclusive show to keep the live fires alive.
Standard tickets will be available for £15 and ticket + art print bundles available for £22.50 (including a limited edition A2 ‘Mid-Sommer Musik’ lithograph). Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday October 16th here: https://PaulWeller.lnk.to/MidSommerMusikPR
