Paul Weller says that people are “not ready” for his record home.
This 62-year-old rocker and his ‘ 80s pop group the style Council originally tried to release their 1998 album ‘modernism: a new decade’ in 1989, nine years before it finally saw the light, and Paul today, expect a long delay was because the record label Polydor was not ready for deep house records.
He said, “Polydor certainly was not ready for this, and probably the audience at that time might not have been, but it’s hard to say.
“It was a small underground sound at a time, it was not mainstream in any way. Years later, I can say that their thinking is – it does not mean that I agree with him – but, of course, influence house music in General just kept going, even now he’s still banging the drums, man.
“But that’s what it was at the time, and you should take it.”
And although Paul had to wait almost ten years to release an album, he says he’s “not mad” about his decision, because “the whole business is different” now.
In ‘wild forest’ musician, released his latest solo album, ‘On sunset’ through Polydor on Friday (03.07.20) – added: “it’s funny because I remember when I first Polydor a few years ago, everyone was always older than me.
“Now their whole team for at least 20 years younger, but I like it. I love a lot of artists they have on their composition, as well as [Billie Eilish, Celeste, Sam Fender] so that was good enough for me.”
When talking about the future Modfather – which was also the main songwriter in the jam – no clear plan, he just wants to keep doing things that make him happy.
Speaking at the Bi-bi-si, he said, “I just love to make music, to record. I don’t want anything else to be honest with you.”
