Paul Weller: 22 Dreams - Out Monday

Following hot on the heels of this weeks release of 'Have You Made Up Your Mind'/'Echoes Round The Sun' we can now look to clear the decks for next Monday when '22 Dreams' is released.

The album draws heavily on the full breadth of Paul's 30 plus year career in music and the influences are diverse and spectacular from introspective acoustic moments to full out psychedelic blowouts. It's the work of a man who is determined to discard any self-imposed limiters as the five star awarding review from The Observer notes:

"The trad rocker's ninth solo album embraces everything from Krautrock to jazz..... it's brilliant" - The Observer.

In traditional terms, it's a double album with 21 tracks as follows:

Light Nights/22 Dreams/All I Wanna Do (Is Be With You)/Have You Made Up Your Mind/Empty Ring/Invisible/Song For Alice/Cold Moments/Dark Pages of September Lead To The New Leaves of Spring/Black River/Why Walk When You Can Run/Push It Along/Dream Reprise/Echoes Round The Sun/One Bright Star/Lullaby Fur Kinder/Where'er Ye Go/God/111/Sea Spray/Night Lights

It comes in three different formats: a standard one disc CD;
DELUXE EDITION - a deluxe boxed edition with booklet and two CD's, the first featuring the standard album and the second, a selection of alternative takes, demo's etc on certain album tracks plus others;
VINYL VERSION - and for vinyl junkies, it comes packaged as a double album

You can currently hear the album in its entirety on You can also hear 30 second excerpts from each track whenever you visit

Paul Weller: All The Pictures On The Wall

Video: All The Pictures On The Wall, live from Sonaria Italy 1995

Paul Weller: All The Pictures On The Wall - Lyrics

And all the pictures on the wall
Serve only to remind you of it all
The wasted days we could have lived
Now we're left with nothing left to give
There was a time I really loved you
But when that was I just can't say
As all the memories merge into one
As each day becomes each day

The clock hands ticking on the wall
Are just reminders of it all
The wasted days we could have lived
Now we're left with nothing left to give

We used to meet each others' eyes
And that's all we'd have to say
Now we don't talk that much at all
The further our eyes seem to stray

And in a funny kind of way
This empty room was full one day
Full of love that we once shared - now it all looks so bare
The silent walls whose cracks I feel -
But is there room to let the hatred heal?
