Seven Sonnets & A Song is the 21st studio album by Australian musician and singer-songwriter Paul Kelly, released in April 2016 via Gawd Aggie Records.

Paul Kelly is one of Australia’s pre-eminent singer-songwriters and wordsmiths, so it’s no surprise that his most treasured possession is his 20kg three volumes of the ‘Collected works of William Shakespeare’.

The works within those pages have served as a deep influence throughout his 30 year career and have now found more direct expression in Seven Sonnets & A Song.

Seven Sonnets & A Song features Paul singing lead vocals on 6 of Shakespeare’s sonnets and a song from Twelfth Night.

The only non-Shakespearian piece is My True Love Hath My Heart, written by his contemporary Sir Philip Sidney and sung here by Vika Bull.

The sonnets were recorded in various studios over the last 18 months.

Musicians performing on them include Lucky Oceans and Alice Keath, as well as members of Paul’s band, Peter Luscombe, Bill McDonald, Ash Naylor, Cameron Bruce, and Vika and Linda Bull.

The album was released at the stroke of midnight, as Friday April 22nd ticks over to Saturday April 23rd, the day Shakespeare died 400 years ago.

Check out a couple of songs from the album - Sonnet 73, Sonnet 18, My True Love Hath My Heart and a video about the making of the album.

This LP Record is on 10" Vinyl at 45 RPM, pressed in Australia.
