Spring and Fall (album) – 2012

Spring and Fall is the nineteenth studio album by Australian folk rock singer-songwriter Paul Kelly which was issued in October 2012 on his own label, Gawd Aggie and distributed via Universal Music. It is due to be issued in Europe and United States in November. The release is his first studio album since Stolen Apples in 2007, and is a concept album as a song cycle “which focuses on a love story told from different points of view”.

It was produced by Kelly, Dan Kelly (his nephew), and Greg “J” Walker (C. W. Stoneking, The Whitlams) and was available as a digipak or digital download. The lead single, “New Found Year”, was released in early October ahead of the album’s release. The album debuted on the ARIA Albums Chart at number eight.
