As Is Now is Paul Weller's eighth studio album. Released in October 2005, it reached number 4 in the UK charts.

The singles from the record were "From The Floorboards Up" (charted at #6), "Come On/Let's Go" (charted at #15), "Here's The Good News" (charted at #21) and the "The As Is Now EP" (which included "Blink And You'll Miss It") which did not qualify for the charts and it had 4 tracks on and was only released on 7". The CD+DVD edition adds (on the DVD) studio footage of "From The Floorboards Up" and "Here's The Good News", the videos of "Come On/Let's Go" and "From The Floorboards Up" and the film "As Is Now".


The album was recorded over a two-week period in March 2005 at Wheeler End Studios, Buckinghamshire. It was then mixed at Studio 150, Amsterdam.
