Street Rituals was produced by The Modfather, who also co-wrote two of the songs and provided guitar, piano and vocals, including a lead vocal on the new single, 'Your Balloon Is Rising'. You can watch the video here.
Says Weller, "These are dark, dark times so I was glad to hear a positive voice and vibrations in the words and a joy in the music...what a pleasure and a privilege it was to work with these fellas... It’s their best songwriting to date, and I just hope people get to hear it because there are some great tunes and I like the message on the record. I like the social comment, because you have so little of that these days.”
Set for release through 100% Records on 31 March, Street Rituals is available to pre-order from the band's website.
Stone Foundation are set to support Weller at his Teenage Cancer Trust show at London's Royal Albert Hall on 31 March, prior to embarking on their own headline tour at the end of April. Full dates are....
