Paul Weller calls for new 'music revolution'.

Paul Weller thinks pop needs a "musical revolution".

The That Dangerous Age singer has been an active musician since 1976, and just released his 11th solo album Sonik Kicks, but feels the industry is at rock bottom and in need of revitalising by a young new band.

He told NME: "I find it all a bit safe and boring at the minute. There's not enough proper f***ing attitude. People are not saying it like they really mean it.

"We need another musical revolution, which has got to come from the roots upwards. I'm waiting for that to happen, for the younger generation to shake it up again because it f***ing needs it."

In line with his ambitions to keep moving forward with his music, the 54-year-old singer and guitarist says despite collaborating with bassist Bruce Foxton from his first band, The Jam, on 2010's Wake up the Nation, he wouldn't reform the group.

He said: "That whole nostalgia thing doesn't do anything for me. Reforming The Jam definitely isn't for me. I like what I'm doing now. I'm moving on."

While reviews of Sonik Kicks has been positive, Paul is still waiting to hear back what his friend and collaborator Noel Gallagher has to say about it.

He added: "I gave him a copy of the record but I've not heard back from him, so whether that means he doesn't like it or he hasn't f***ing listened to it, I don't know."
