PAUL WELLER 'ON SUNSET' (Remixes) 12" VINYL (2020)
Release of a slice of very special heavyweight 12” vinyl featuring 5 remixes of stand out tracks from Paul Weller’s recent critically acclaimed No 1 album “On Sunset”.
This limited edition eclectic collection of remixers were chosen by Paul himself, with all the reworkings creating a fresh twist on the original tracks.
One of the singles originally taken from “On Sunset”, the sublime “More”, is given an other-worldly dreamy remix by Skeleton Key, which is an alias for James Skelly of Liverpool band The Coral.
Senegalese drummer Seckou Keita creates a beautifully stripped back version of “Rockets” featuring his added vocals and sparkling delicate strings, whilst acclaimed psych-folk singer Jane Weaver also plays with “Rockets” but gives it a completely different mind-bending trippy feel.
Welsh songstress and synth player Gwenno contructs a minimalist and atmospheric sound on “Old Father Thyme” creating a trance-like and abstract version. Le SuperHomard, who’s singer, Julie Gros, appeared as guest vocalist on “More”, gives the album’s title track their own special French je ne sais quoi which conjures up disco balls in plush nightclubs.
