A Kind Revolution is the thirteenth studio album by English singer-songwriter Paul Weller, released in May 2017 via Parlophone Records.

Paul Weller’s time with The Jam and The Style Council was marked by constant stylistic renewal, careering through genres like a speeding mod on a runaway scooter. For a long time, the solid rock of his solo years suggested he’d given up challenging himself, but late period triumphs like 2008’s 22 Dreams, 2012’s Sonik Kicks’ and 2015’s Saturns Patterns have found him broadening his palette once again, trying out styles from pulsing Krautrock to harp-strewn jazz to acid-rock.

The new album A Kind Revolution continues the stylistic variations mixing electronica with blues, folk, rock and jazz. It feels like an artistic extension of the previous album Saturns Patterns.

The album features a collaboration with Robert Wyatt on the song “She Moves With The Fayre”. Wyatt contributes vocals and trumpet to the song. The album also features guest vocals from Boy George on the track “One Tear”, an artist that Weller has rated since the 1980s. This track is a standout on the album.

Mojo magazine rated the album with 5 stars (out of 5) concluding “…the album – just 10 tracks in all – finishes with “The Impossible Idea”, a waltzing, stagey number that seems to borrow its melody from Mary Poppins’ Let’s Go Fly A Kite, and which leaves the listener on a joyous high, reaching for the better place that A Kind Revolution suggests the human race deserves. It’s a fitting finale to an album that ranks among his finest work, not just for it strident messages of hop, but also for simply possessing such a high quotient of unimpeachable songs. A Kind Revolution, then, we should embrace…”

Check out the following tracks:  Woo Sé Mama (Live at Watford Colosseum)”; “Satellite Kid”; “Long Long Road”; “Nova”; “She Moves With The Fayre”; andOne Tear”.

This LP record is on 180 gram vinyl with a lyric booklet, art print and digital download code, pressed in Europe.
