Song of the Day: "Around the Lake"

New Weller, coming in 2012
Paul Weller's Sonik Kicks, his 11th solo album, will be released in March of 2012. If this track is an indication, he's taking to some new musical roads (I love the driving bass line, and there's a sleekness to the dark sound -- the things I like about Interpol are on display here, but I'm not comparing the actual sounds).

According to the email I received promoting this song: "On his eleventh solo album Weller continues to the push the boundaries, looking forward rather than back unlike so many of his contemporaries."

Or, in the words of Kodos: "As a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball, but tonight I say, we must move forward, not backward, upward not forward, and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom." Clearly Weller and Kodos both speak from the same place. Rock on, both of you!
