Out Now: Stream ‘On Sunset,’ the New Album from ‘The Modfather’ Himself, Paul Weller

Rock Cellar Magazine StaffCategories:Latest News

Paul Weller was supposed to release his new album, On Sunset, earlier in the summer — only to see the COVID-19 pandemic throw a wrench in those plans and delay the record’s release.

It has since finally been released, coming out last Friday, July 3. Previewed in recent weeks with a few songs, On Sunset finds “The Modfather” challenging himself once again, channeling his creativity in a number of disparate and, at times, unexpected ways.

A previous news release for On Sunset summed up the proceedings as follows:

It’s a soul album, but at the same time it’s also an electronic album, an orchestral album, an album packed with masterly pop songs and heart-tugging ballads, and an album filled with touches of experimentalism. It’s also an album that sees Weller taking a rare glance into the rear-view mirror as he speeds into the 2020s.


Paul Weller has always pushed the envelope with his rather prolific solo career. On Sunset is his fifteenth solo album since his self-titled 1992 debut, which came after the dissolution of both The Jam and the Style Council, at which point Weller was without a band or record deal in 1989.

Since then, he’s forged a unique and resilient path for himself, and On Sunset continues that legacy to great effect. Stream the album below, via Spotify:
