The LP is the 14th solo album of Weller's career and the 26th of his career in all.
The album is a departure for Weller from his recent work, with the jerky krautrock left behind and dreamy, 60s pop inspired taking centre stage.
The Zombies' Rod Argent, Lucy Rose, White Label’s Tom Doyle and Noel Gallagher all guest on the album.
Pale Waves - My Mind Makes Noises
Dirty Hit Records
The 1975 approved oddballs unveil their much-anticipated debut album next month.

Jungle - For Ever
The mysterious London duo finally follow-up their hugely acclaimed 2014 debut album next month with For Ever.
Initially, Tom McFarland and Josh Lloyd-Watson headed to Los Angeles to write and record their second LP, but after difficult adjusting and the demise of their long-term relationships, the pair returned to London.
They've described the new album as "post-apocalyptic radio station playing break up songs".
