Legendary Australian troubadour Paul Kelly has announced plans to release his brand new album Life Is Fine on the 11th August.

The album is Kelly’s first “normal” album in a while with his most recent releases (The Merri Soul Sessions, Seven Sonnets and a Song, Death’s Dateless Night) being more concept and collaboration based. Paul Kelly himself is comparing Life Is Fine to his earlier work.

“I knew I wanted it to be an upbeat record,” Kelly explains. “We worked with Steve Schram, who engineered and co-produced. He likes to work really fast and get the performance of the band live in the studio, vocals and all at the same time. There are lots of different ways to make records but that’s the way I like to do it now.”

“At first I worried about Life Is Fine as a title because life is not fine for everyone. But I like the original meaning of fine, as in life is a fine thread. We never know what is going to happen the very next minute, or what is just around the corner.”

The first single from Life Is Fine is “Firewood and Candles” which you can listen to on Spotify here.
