Exclusive premiere

Stone Foundation have released a gorgeous session video for 'Your Balloon Is Rising' featuring the one and only Paul Weller, following the announcement of their new album Street Rituals.

Weller produced the album, which features 10 brand new tracks, and joined the band for sessions where he added piano, guitar and vocals.

Watch our premiere of the video below:

Stone Foundation were formed by Neil Sheasby and Neil Jones, and are influenced by legends of American soul whilst also maintaining a distinctly British sound.

Paul Weller told The Independent: "Neil wanted me to sing on 'Balloon', which I’m awfully glad he asked me to, because it’s a great song.

"When he sent me the demo I didn’t know what he had in mind for it but I thought the song was great. Balloon’s just a beautiful track with the brass and the strings - just a great song, lovely message as well to it. I was very very pleased to sing on that and privileged."
