Paul Kelly: Spring and Fall Tour
14th Dec 2013 7:30pm
Recorded in Gippsland, country Victoria with J. Walker (Machine Translations) – comes Australian National Treasure – Paul Kelly’s long awaited first album in five years. Some of the guest musicians on the album include Dan Kelly, Pete and Dan Luscombe, Vika & Linda Bull and Laura Jean.
The concept of the album is best described by Paul himself: “Spring And Fall is a song cycle. It’s been five years since I made a record and perhaps the experience of writing a book during that time made me attuned to the idea of developing a close knit structure for the next thing I did. I knew I didn’t just want to put out a collection of songs loosely related to each other.”
“Also, noticing that people are listening to music more and more now in a grazing kind of way – picking a song here and a song there – spurred me on to try and make a record that would take a stand on behalf of the ALBUM. I’m a music grazer with the best of them but there is still a deep satisfaction in encountering a set of songs that unfolds from start to finish and demands to be heard in its entirety.”
“So Spring And Fall has an arc suggested by its title. There are multiple viewpoints with links from song to song. Each song contains the seed of the song that follows. They are all love songs and the album is a love story.” – Paul Kelly
