LISTEN: Paul Weller - 'Dragonfly' EP

Paul Weller will release a new EP, titled ‘Dragonfly’, next month. Listen to all six tracks from the EP below...

The six-track collection, which is set for release on December 17, will feature songs taken from the recording sessions of his latest studio album ‘Sonik Kicks’. You can see the video for the title track by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking. 

The tracklisting for ‘Dragonfly’ is as follows:

'Lay Down Your Weary Burden'
'Portal To The Past'
'We Got A Lot' 
'The Piper' 

The Modfather’s former band, The Jam, are set to reissue their classic 1982 album ‘The Gift’ later this month (November 19) to coincide with its 30th anniversary. The Gift' was the trio's only Number One and the last before their split and includes tracks such as 'Town Called Malice', 'Running On The Spot' and 'Carnation'. The gift box super-deluxe edition will feature a re-master of the original album with bonus tracks which include the band's last singles 'Great Depression', 'The Bitterest Pill', and 'Beat Surrender'. It will also include a previously unreleased 'Live At Wembley' recording of The Jam's last ever tour and a compilation DVD of live footage and TV appearances.

However, it seems unlikely that they will reform in the future, with Weller slamming the trend for reuniting bands earlier this year. Speaking after acts such as Blur, Pulp and The Stone Roses played comeback shows in the summer, he said: "It drives me potty to be honest and I am sick of seeing it. It is big business at the moment and I find it really disappointing and I think all the time that is spent on bands reforming and nostalgia. What about the new bands, or young bands, coming in which don't get a look in?"
