Noel Gallagher has claimed that Paul Weller used the most of his spare time during lockdown to record a new album.
The guitarist, who is close friends with the Modfather, says he completed the follow up to 2020’s ‘On Sunset‘ while staying at home during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
He told Matt Morgan’s podcast: “I’ve seen him and I’ve spoken to him a couple of times.
“I’ve seen him, we didn’t talk about coronavirus, we’re not neurotic, I never mentioned it and he never mentioned apart from to say it’s shit.
“I know he’s recorded another album since lockdown started, he had one that came out in lockdown and about two weeks later he’d finished another one. He’s a got a great studio.”
While any further details on Weller’s 16th album are yet to emerge, he was previously forced to push back his latest UK tour to the end of 2021
