Australian icon Paul Kelly has just announced he will follow up 2017’s Life Is Fine, with a new album Nature, due for release this October.
The news is paired with new single, With The One I Love, and video featuring Mojo Juju, and Vika and Linda Bull.
Nature will pair work by Sylvia Plath, Walt Whitman, Dylan Thomas, Gerard Manley Hopkins and Phillip Larkin, with poems from the scribe himself, put to music in a new creative process for the artist.
Kelly says the songs are linked by “the natural world” and observe “human nature’s small place” within it.
“I think of Nature as a companion piece to Life Is Fine, itself full of moons, rain, rocks, rivers, seas, smells and lovers,” he said.
Life Is Fine earned Kelly his first ARIA Number One album when it debuted at top spot on release last year.
Nature will be released on 12 October by EMI. Check out With The One I Love below.
