New Single - 'When Your Garden's Overgrown'

Following the chart topping success of 'Sonik Kicks' and five sold out shows at the Roundhouse, Weller will return on May 28th with his next single 'When Your Garden's Overgrown'.

The release will be available as a digital EP and is set to be backed by two brand new tracks - 'We Got A Lot' & 'Lay Down Your Weary Burden'

Discussing 'When Your Garden's Overgrown', Paul said: "I think this song's about Syd Barrett. It's like, what would it have been like if he hadn't got into music? If he'd gone off to the continent and just been an artist on the side-street in France. He probably would've been happier.

"There's some lines in there about the brush strokes of fame and I'm thinking of Syd at the time. He was an artist at heart, not a rock star."

The full tracklisting of the EP will be:

1. When Your Garden's Overgrown
2. We Got A Lot
3. Lay Down Your Weary Burden

Stay tuned for pre-order details coming soon.

When your garden's overgrown with We got a lot and Lay down your weary burden.

What about We Got A Lot? How does it sound like?

I'm just happy to have downloaded The Piper; it's a wothwhile addition to Sonik Kicks.
