Rock CellarThese are themes and this is a style you’ve touched on in the past, but you’ve never done them in one piece, in what feels almost like a complete movement. Did you think of it thematically? Is there sort of a loose concept holding it together?

Paul Weller: I sort of touch on a few concepts, I suppose, but not in concrete way. I think, more than anything, I just wanted to have it kind of run together but still have a strong dynamic to it. I think thematically, I suppose there’s quite a few songs about loss, and grief, and how people deal with grief, and mortality, and how I suppose that becomes more apparent the older you get.
