About Please Leave Your Light On

Please Leave Your Light On is a collaborative studio album by Australian musicians Paul Kelly, and Paul Grabowsky. The album was released on 31 July 2020. The collection features Kelly performing songs from nine of his albums, along with the previously unreleased track "True to You" and a cover of Cole Porter's "Every Time We Say Goodbye" to new interpretations by Grabowsky.The album was announced on 17 June 2020 and in a press statement, Grabowsky said "The performances are intimate, and shine a light on lyrical moments from the Kelly oeuvre. Paul is a generous collaborator, always listening closely to what I am doing, and giving me the freedom to bring my own interpretation to the songs. I think people will hear, and hopefully enjoy, the deep communication that we are bringing to the performances." with Kelly adding "Singing with Paul is like walking a tightrope. It's as if we are acrobats together. We have to pay serious attention to one another to pull the songs off. I like that."Grabowsky said the album was inspired by Frank Sinatra, Nelson Riddle, Bill Evans and Tony Bennett. "They're massive influences upon me and they've been massive influences upon this project. That was kind of a baseline for what we were trying to do."At the 2020 ARIA Music Awards it won ARIA Award for Best Jazz Album.
