A limited edition 7″ single of “Woo Sé Mama” will be released on August 25. The single b-side is a cover of Eddie Floyd’s “I’ve Never Found A Girl (To Love Me Like You Do),” which was recorded live at <a href=""website Black Barn Studios during rehearsals for a recent radio session.
Watch the video of a live version of “Woo Sé Mama,” which was shot at Paul’s recent sold out show at Watford Colosseum, here:

In the meantime, A Kind Revolution continues to attract rave reviews:
A Kind Revolution is a testament to his industriousness but also his restlessness. Paul Weller will always find a way to change himself into something new.” – SPIN
“This is a master craftsman, who knows how to cobble together a verse, chorus, bridge and middle eight as well as any McCartney or Bacharach.” – Uncut (8/10)
“An excellent set of 10 richly-detailed yet uncluttered songs which prolong his creative renaissance… carefully crafted settings updating his classic sounds with some exquisite playing.” –Associated Press

About The Author Kris Engelhart

I am a small business owner, freelance writer, and part-time piano instructor in Charlotte, NC. My musical career started at the age of five when I was forced into taking piano lessons. I played flute in the school band and added the guitar as a young teen. There is nothing I would rather do than be at a live show. My first concert was Shaun Cassidy at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo in 1978.
My top five live shows ever are:

1. Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band – Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, NY 1984- They played for 3 ½ hours and it was awesome.

2. Carolina Rebellion- Metrolina Expo Grounds, Charlotte, NC, May, 2011 – The first ever Carolina Rebellion featured over 15 bands with Avenged Sevenfold headlining. Non-stop music for over 12 hours.
3. Chevelle- Food Lion Speed Street, Charlotte, NC, May, 2008 – The first time I ever saw Chevelle live and I was hooked!
4. Skillet with Red- Bojangle’s Coliseum, Charlotte, NC, April, 2010 – Skillet is one of my favorite bands and they totally kick it live.
5. 106.5 The End’s Weenie Roast #9- Verizon Wireless Amiptheater, Charlotte, NC , October, 2003- Featured Staind, Shinedown, Three Days Grace.
