Paul Weller Signs Deal with Parlophone

The iconic UK label Parlophone and Paul Weller have signed a deal for releasing the singer’s 12th album titled ‘Saturns Patterns’. During the carving up of EMI into Universal, Parlophone was purchased by Warner Music. It was in 1985 in Germany when the label was founded as Parlophon and in 1927, it was purchased by Columbia Graphone Company. It wasn’t until 1931 that the company became Electrical and Musical Industries Ltd. or EMI.

For decades, EMI’s comedy and spoken-word label was Parlophone. 24-year old George Martin joined EMI in 1950 and was promoted to label manager in 1955. It was in 1965 that the label changed its direction when Parlophone was used by Martin for signing the Beatles. Today, Kylie Minogue, Coldplay, Lily Allen and Damon Albarn all call Parlophone their recording home. Paul Weller is the historic label’s latest signing.

The album Saturn’s Pattern will feature some great musicians along with Paul Weller’s touring band including Steve Pilgrim, Andy Crofts, Steve Cradock and Ben Gordelier. The album has a total of nine or ten tracks, which are mentioned below:

Saturns Pattern
Long Time
In the Car
White Sky
Paul Weller’s White Sky
These City Streets
Going my Way
I’m where I should be
Pick it Up
