For somebody with a restless creative spirit, Paul Weller has no quarrel with taking frequent strolls through his back pages. An Orchestrated Songbook finds the singer/songwriter plucking a number of softer tunes from throughout his career, then turning them over to Jules Buckley to arrange for the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Weller held the concert on May 15, 2021, releasing it as An Orchestrated Songbook later in the year, and as something of a companion piece to Other Aspects: Live at Royal Festival Hall, the orchestrated live album he released just two years prior. Where Other Aspects was designed to showcase 2018's True Meanings, An Orchestrated Songbook gives away its game with its title. It's neither an unveiling of new material nor a bunch of greatest hits but rather a cohesive collection of ballads and introspective numbers punctuated by an occasional bit of pop. Most orchestral rearrangements of pop/rock material veer toward the grandiose, so it's noteworthy that An Orchestrated Songbook feels intimate, the symphony acting as empathetic support to Weller's guitar and voice. Buckley's arrangements of Weller's canny self-curation help give An Orchestrated Songbook a subtle but palpable emotional resonance that separates it from other orchestral pop reworkings, not to mention the heavy number of Weller live albums.

Album Description

For somebody with a restless creative spirit, Paul Weller has no quarrel with taking frequent strolls through his back pages. An Orchestrated Songbook finds the singer/songwriter plucking a number of softer tunes from throughout his career, then turning them over to Jules Buckley to arrange for the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Weller held the concert on May 15, 2021, releasing it as An Orchestrated Songbook later in the year, and as something of a companion piece to Other Aspects: Live at Royal Festival Hall, the orchestrated live album he released just two years prior. Where Other Aspects was designed to showcase 2018's True Meanings, An Orchestrated Songbook gives away its game with its title. It's neither an unveiling of new material nor a bunch of greatest hits but rather a cohesive collection of ballads and introspective numbers punctuated by an occasional bit of pop. Most orchestral rearrangements of pop/rock material veer toward the grandiose, so it's noteworthy that An Orchestrated Songbook feels intimate, the symphony acting as empathetic support to Weller's guitar and voice. Buckley's arrangements of Weller's canny self-curation help give An Orchestrated Songbook a subtle but palpable emotional resonance that separates it from other orchestral pop reworkings, not to mention the heavy number of Weller live albums.

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.

Interpol, Fade to Black

At the dawn of the new millennium, when garage was king, the New York quartet that then became a trio exploded onto the scene by reviving the dark romanticism of 80’s post-punk.

Nick Cave: Bad Seed

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain one of the most prolific adventures of the post-punk era. Since the late 1980s, the vast magnetism of the Australian singer has swirled through violent paroxysms, fulminating covers, piano ballads and sweaty rock'n'roll. As the years went by, Cave became more and more of a crooner, part way between a punk Frank Sinatra and an austere Johnny Cash.
