Due Nov. 1 via Universal, the release comes in tandem with a pair of US shows by the band's frontman Paul Weller. The singer/guitarist will actively promote his Mercury Prize-nominated 2010 album 'Wake Up the Nation' at L.A.'s Wiltern Theater on Nov. 3 and at New York's Nokia Theater on Nov. 7.
According to Slicing Up Eyeballs, Weller says that his latest album, produced by Simon Dine, was influenced by 'Sound Affects'. "[Simon] referenced it right at the start," Weller said. "That was the sort of sound he imagined we should be going for: hard, metallic, quite stripped-down ... jagged."
The Jam's rendition of 'Waterloo Sunset' marks its second recorded homage to the Kinks, as the band previously cover 'David Watts' on 1978's 'All Mod Cons' album. In addition to the aforementioned demos, the other 14 appended tracks are culled from 1992's 'Extras' and the 1997 box set 'Direction Reaction Creation.' The deluxe edition's booklet will also feature a new interview with Weller, plus rare photos and memorabilia.
