10th Anniversary Edition
Weller explains why this edition is coming out: “I was never happy with the mix on Wake Up The Nation, so when someone pointed out that it had been 10 years since it’s been out I thought it was a good opportunity to try a re-mix on it. I liked the chaos and intensity of the original but I could hear how much you couldn’t hear in it. I think the new mix reveals lots more parts that you didn’t hear in the original while still keeping the energy.”
The album features guest appearances from from My Bloody Valentine’s Kevin Shields and Paul’s former Jam bandmate Bruce Foxton and largely features short songs with creative and experimental arrangements.
A CD of this new remix (created by Weller and Jan ‘Stan’ Kybert) is released on 27 November and a vinyl LP will follow in 2021.
