Paul Kelly - Nature (deluxe CD/DVD) (CD/DVD DOUBLE)

Following the triumphant success of his 2017 albumLife Is Fine,Australia's greatest and most enduring songwriter Paul Kelly returns in 2018 with his new studio albumNature.

Kelly entered the studio in Melbourne in March and May this year to recordNaturewith his esteemed band -Peter Luscombe on drums, Bill McDonald on bass, Ash Naylor and Dan Kelly on guitars and Cameron Bruce on keyboards."I love playing with them,"he says."They can morph from delicate scientists to big riff rockers and all states in-between." It also features the vocals of Vikaand Linda Bull, his daughters Madeleine & Memphis Kelly, Alice Keathand Kate Miller-Heidke.

Naturebrings together poems from five literary greats -Dylan Thomas, Walt Whitman, Sylvia Plath, Gerard Manley Hopkins and Phillip Larkin -alongside poems that Kelly wrote himself and later put to music, and his own original songs that came along in the usual way, as sounds sung to chords that then turned into words.

Explaining the creative process behind Nature, Kelly says, "I've been playing around with poems since 2012 and it's now become another way for me to write songs.I think most writers getsick of themselves and their own habits so it's a happy surprise, after 40 years of writing songs, to find a new way.

"What links them all is the natural world –trees, birds, animals, plants, dust, desert, water –and human nature's small place in that world. Most of the pieces were written over the last four years in and around the recording sessions for 'The Merri Soul Sessions', 'Seven Sonnets And A Song' and 'Life Is Fine'. I didn't realiseI had the makings of another album until I put the songs in a folder and saw the titles staring me in the face. Sometimes you don't know what you're doing until you look back.

"I think of 'Nature' as a companion piece to 'Life is Fine', itself full of moons, rain, rocks, rivers, seas, smells and lovers."

The limitedDeluxe EditionofNatureis a major bonus for the legion of Paul Kelly fans: Disc 1 is the 12-song Nature album and Disc 2 is a 27-song DVD, capturing last year's triumphant show from the forecourt of the Sydney Opera House, which was broadcast live around the country by the ABC as their major 'Australian Music Month' promotion. The DVD captures Paul and his long-time band in brilliant form as they feature songs from the just-released, ARIA award-winningLife Is Finealbum as well as Paul Kelly classics like 'To Her Door', "From Little Things…', 'How To Make Gravy', 'Before Too Long', 'Deeper Water' and many more.
