Paul Kelly’s first Christmas album is an extraordinary 22-song collection that travels across the centuries, from a Latin hymn to wellknown carols, from a traditional Irish folk ballad to new Kelly music written for Christmas poems. There are songs with an unmistakable Australian sound like Three Drovers and Swing Around the Sun, and a sparkling new version of one of the greatest Australian Christmas songs of them all, Kelly’s own How to Make Gravy. The album is delivered by Paul and his band with a big cast of Christmas helpers including vocalists Vika and Linda Bull, Marlon Williams, Kasey Chambers, Alice Keath, Emily Lubitz, Lior and Emma Donovan, with contributions from the Kelly clan. The writer, radio and TV presenter Waleed Aly also makes an appearance, reading verses from The Qur’an. Paul says: “I’ve chosen songs I love, which led me often to wander off the well-worn path, then chosen singers I thought best suited to them.” The albums finds new ways to explore Christmas favorites too, with a Hawaiian flavour for Silent Night and a performance by Marlon Williams singing Tapu Te Pō (O Holy Night) in the Māori language. Folk, classical, soul, carols and hymns, rock and roll. Get ready for an album that’s going to become a part of celebrating an Australian Christmas for many years to come.
