Electric guitar player Paul Weller has revealed that soul singer Dusty Springfield provided him with inspiration for his most recent single.

Speaking to BBC 6 Music, Weller stated that No Tears To Cry, one of two songs on a double A-side release, took Burt Bacharach as another one of its starting points.

"We were thinking just along the lines of the old Dusty records and Walker Brothers - those grand, melodramatic arrangements and stuff, so there's kind of a hint of that in there as well really," he added.

His new record also features Bruce Foxton, his former bandmate from The Jam, on bass guitar.

Weller said it was a pleasure to work with Foxton again, before going on to praise Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine, who also contributed to the new album, Wake Up the Nation.

The electric guitar player is set to play the Royal Albert Hall for five consecutive nights this May.
