After an unparalleled career, characterized by constant musical experimentation, we should be used to Paul Weller’s relentless desire to chop and change his sound. But after the triumphant, Brit Award-bagging success of 22 Dreams (his third solo number one in the UK), his 2010 album Wake Up the Nation saw one of rock’s most iconic songwriters expand and evolve once more. A departure stylistically from the more pastoral sounds of his 22 Dreams, Wake Up was lean, mean and as uncompromisingly focused as its maker. It also brought Paul Weller full circle: twenty-eight years on from The Jam’s split, two tracks feature the former bassist Bruce Foxton. The album also saw contributions from My Bloody Valentine guitar alchemist Kevin Shields, ELO’s Bev Bevan and legendary session drummer Clem Cattini.
