has released the first song from his upcoming soundtrack to the new film, Jawbone
. Check out "The Ballad of Jimmy McCabe" below. The soundtrack will be out in early March but you can pre-order the album now which includes 7 new Weller tracks. Jawbone
is Paul Weller’s first film score and director Johnny Harris found Weller’s approach and music inspirational.
“Paul would constantly send through any new ideas, demos, or recordings, and what was unique and beautiful about this approach was that Paul's new compositions were now inspiring and influencing the story as I was re-writing it. I'd also send Paul through new drafts of the script, or any new ideas as they were forming along the way, and a beautifully collaborative process evolved” The album will be out on March 10 and Jawbone will show in UK cinemas starting March 17 with a release in the U.S. set for later this year.
Weller will join Richard Hawley for a special concert at Union Chapel in London on February 16 as part of Hawley’s War Child BRITs week fundraiser.
Money raised by the concert will aid War Child's work to protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children whose lives have be torn apart by war. Find out more at Paul Weller’s website
