Paul Weller Pays Homage To David Bowie On 14th Solo Album ‘True Meanings’

Paul Weller has given his former foe David Bowie a musical nod in the new song ‘Bowie’ to be released on his 14th solo album ‘True Meanings’ in September.

Bowie and Weller had a long running feud after Paul called David’s music ‘pish’. However, a decade ago, around the release of Weller’s ’22 Dreams’ album, the pair made up and actually became friends.

In 2008 Weller admitted to Bowie’s ‘Ziggy Stardust’ being one of his favourite albums. He also loved 1977’s ‘Low’, saying it was “a constant since I bought it in 1977’.

Bowie read Weller’s comments and emailed him to say thanks, ending his email “Nice one, Paul, Can I have my haircut back now?”

Paul Weller’s ‘True Meanings’ album will be released on September 14.

True Meanings will be available in the following formats:

• CD: Housed in a ‘soft-pack’ gatefold card wallet with 12-page booklet.

• Deluxe CD: Limited, deluxe edition CD in a case-bound book package, including a 28-page booklet of photos and lyrics.

• Vinyl LP: Double heavyweight black vinyl LP, housed in a gatefold ‘tip-on’ sleeve, with eight-page booklet fixed inside the sleeve, plus a download card. The tip-on sleeve is limited to initial orders only.

• Digital: Available to download and stream via all DSPs.

1. The Soul Searchers
