Australian singer/songwriter Paul Kelly will be releasing his 19th studio album, “Spring and Fall” on November 6. It will be Kelly’s first album of new material in five years. His last release was the career-spanning compilation “Songs From The South” and now he begins again on a clean slate.
The theme of this release centers on the highs and lows of being in love, beginning with “New Found Year.” The song discusses the travels of time as only Paul Kelly knows how. His voice and words just wrap you up and take you on a storied journey as in “For The Ages.” Kelly sounds a little like Cat Stevens with the folk-styling of “Gonna Be Good” and reaches his peak with the dark sounding “Time And Tide.” Paul Kelly, considered the Australian Bob Dylan, brings truth to that statement with the exceptional “Sometimes My Baby”and the album closer “Little Aches And Pains.”
Hot on the heels of his new album; with be a feature-length documentary on Paul Kelly entitled “Stories Of Me,” which will be released in September of 2013. For more information on “Spring And Fall,” please visit paulkelly.com.
