Watch The Paul Kelly Christmas Video

Paul Kelly has debuted his music video for ‘Christmas’ from his upcoming ‘Christmas Train’ album coming 19 November.

“’Christmas’ was written by a couple of friends of mine, Chris and Wes Harrington, from Melbourne band, The Large Number Twelves. I’ve seen them play a lot over the years around St Kilda so I’ve known this song for a long time. It’s a fun rock ’n’ roll song with a nod to the 60s. Good for lots of harmonies. There was one high harmony none of us could reach so we invited Billy Miller (who wrote Firewood and Candles and other songs with me) to come and sing it. He absolutely nailed it. Bill is friends with Chris and Wes, too, and plays with them from time to time, so it was good to keep it all in the ‘family’” Paul says.

‘Christmas’ was directed by Siân Darling (Courtney Barnett, Alice Skye, Electric Fields) and shot on the streets of St Kilda with an iPhone.
