Paul Weller - An Orchestrated Songbook: Paul Weller with Jules Buckley & the BBC Symphony Orchestra
This extraordinary performance was a first for Paul, performing with a full orchestra, and saw a quintessential selection of his vast catalogue exquisitely reworked and updated into 75 minutes of breath-taking music that was broadcast across the BBC.
+ Deluxe CD includes a hardback book.
+ Heavyweight double LP in heavyweight tip-on gatefold sleeve with 8-page booklet.
Alongside the orchestra, Paul was also accompanied by long-term collaborator and guitarist Steve Cradock. This eclectic assortment of compositions from Paul’s illustrious career, invigorated by Jules Bickley’s sumptuous arrangements made for a visual and aural delight.
As a co-production with the BBC, the show was performed in the grand setting of London’s Barbican on May 15th and originally went out live online, later to be broadcast in full on Radio 2 on 13th June, 6Music on the 16th June and then on 19th June on BBC2.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
