Last Tuesday, Paul Weller released a new standalone single, Starlite, which will surely delight his longstanding Style Council fans.

For the first time in 20 years, Weller recaptures that soulful dance spirit that made The Style Council stand apart from both his earlier The Jam material as well as his later solo work.

Here’s how Weller describes the new track:

Here’s a brand new track called ‘Starlite’ in time for the Summer. It’s not from the forthcoming album, it’s just for NOW! It’s part Balearic beat, poetry and psychedelic music. I hope you like it.  ~PWx

Personally, I love it and have been playing it all week long, as I’m sure my Twitter followers can attest.

The track will be available for purchase on iTunes on August 7. I’ll provide an update with the iTunes link at that time.

Here is Starlite. Enjoy!

‘Move On Up’ is one of the best songs ever written.  Curtis Mayfield was the master of socially-aware, inspirational music, and his live performances were as tight and emotional as his studio recordings.  His music was and still is loved and covered by artists from all over the world.  Here he was in 1987 playing in The Hague, Netherlands.  Enjoy!:
