Yep Roc is proud to release "Illumination", the sixth solo album from Paul Weller and his first U.S. studio effort since 1997's "Heavy Soul". As the young voice of punk legends The Jam, Paul Weller has influenced nearly every important UK band of the last 20 years. The list counts UK charttoppers Blur, Supergrass, and Oasis (Oasis leader Noel Gallagher makes an guest appearance on "Illumination") among his many admirers. Since disbanding The Jam in 1982, Weller has created a a slew of great records--first as the focal point of The Style Council ('My Ever Changing Moods' was a worldwide smash in 1984), followed by his current solo output--while still retaining the mantle of most beloved popstar in the UK. As proof, "Illumination" debuted #1 on the UK charts. The Yep Roc release of "Illumination" will include bonuses exclusive to this version (and not found on any import). Plus, in early 2003, Paul Weller will embark on his first extended U.S. tour in many years. The soulful "Illumination" may well his finest release to date and is a warm reintroduction to Paul Weller.
