In October 2018, Paul Weller performed two extraordinary must-see concerts at The Royal Festival Hall in London with an orchestra. The second of these shows was recorded and now sees the light of day as a stand-out live album and DVD, to be released on March 8, pre-order the album here.

Other Aspects, Live At The Royal Festival Hall features an eclectic 25 track career-spanning set.  As well as classics from Paul’s rich back catalogue, the bulk of the critically acclaimed performance features 11 songs from the gorgeous True Meanings – Paul’s roundly lauded, UK no. 2 album which was released last September. The album also includes several live tracks from Paul’s days in The Jam, including a radical re-working of "Private Hell" from their 1979 LP Setting Sons and a brilliantly realised version of "Boy About Town". The Style Council get a welcome look-in too with "Have You Ever Had It Blue" and "A Man Of Great Promise". Other firm solo favourites such as "You Do Something To Me" and "Long Long Road" fit seamlessly into the set. As well as the full concert, the DVD also features a behind-the-scenes mini-documentary with rehearsal footage and interviews.

The shows were a resounding success with meticulous arrangements and superb sound, with Paul’s voice sounding richer and more assured than ever. Ably assisted by conductor/arranger Hannah Peel, along with Paul’s usual touring band, the show featured the London Metropolitan Orchestra and, on the sublime Books, Paul was joined on-stage by Lucy Rose and three incredible musicians: Sheema Mukherjee, Kamalbir Nandra and Tofail Ahmed playing Sitar, Tanpura and Indian Violin.
