The Modfather Brings About Peace (and new album)
Not exactly the Brit-Pop version of an East Coast-West Coast truce, but close enough: Paul Weller’s upcoming studio album 22 Dreams, features contributions from ex-Blur guitarist Graham Coxon, as well as Oasis six-stringers Noel Gallagher and Gem Archer. (Gallagher and Archer's "Echoes Round the Sun" is scheduled to be the first single.) The new album hits retail on June 24th.
