“Movin On” by Paul Weller

Weller Wednesday Lyriquediscorde

It’s been a while since Weller Wednesday happened here at lyriquediscorde. I think Weller and I needed a break. Sometimes space is needed to redefine music that once held significance in a relationship that is no longer. Though I was a fan before, it was definitely a shared thing, and I needed to find a way to unlink it, and put the memories away. I needed to find my way back to the music of Weller on my own.

Thanks, Paul Weller, for choosing a Weller Wednesday to release the second single, “Movin On”, from the upcoming album, True Meanings, coming out this September. It’s just what I needed to get back into your music. Lyrically, too, this song feels timely and relevant, and also just what I needed, for me, today.

“Thru’ the heartaches and pain,
thru’ the darkness again,
til you find yourself back,
in the light once again.
To show –
you’re movin on.”

Paul Weller True Meanings Weller Wednesday

True Meanings to be released on September 14, 2018. Pre-order your copy here.

“Movin On” features English folk singer and guitarist Martin Carthy, as well as Villagers’ members, and songwriters, Conor O’Brien and Erland Cooper. Exceptional strings, something Weller is stellar at, add a bit of a jazz to this breezy summer folk-ish song. Something in the arrangement and lyrics reminds me of the mid-90’s.

Though I prefer Weller’s earlier single from True Meanings, “Aspects”, this new track feels like a grower. I know I’ll be hitting play many times in the near future…starting right now.

I do love the sentiment of moving on from pain and hurt, from things that hold you back, and perhaps even from yourself. Its hopeful, and I do love hopeful. I think we could all use some hopeful today. Thanks, PW.
