Paul Weller has invited Q into the his studio to give us an update on his latest album – which you can read in our new issue out now.

The Modfather will release Saturn’s Pattern in April, but he gave Ted Kessler a preview of the record at his Black Barn base.

“I think it has fluidity and movement in the songs,” he explains of the new LP. “Sonically I think it’s streets ahead of anything out there and it’s got the tunes as well.

“I can hear deep house in some tracks. I can hear jazz funk in it. Blues and R’n’B. We were going for something big-sounding.”
