A decade on from his last solo outing, Paul released a new album in April 2015. HOLIDAY FROM ME was written and recorded across three continents, Australia, Europe and North America. “Music has always been my escape to a magic place, a world where I feel freedom, joy and all the pulses that the heart can create,” explains Paul, “I called the album HOLIDAY FROM ME because that is exactly what I was trying to do, escape to that magic place.”
“After working with female Diva-type vocalists for the last – um, every Paul Mac single, like ever,- I tried a little experiment. I had an idea for a song called ‘Anechoic’.
I was looking for a collaborator to bounce ideas off. One of my favourite whimsical vocalists is Tim Derricourt (Dappled Cities). We workshopped the concept and came up with a kind of choir of lovers leaving planet Earth, singing in space where no-one can hear you, but it feels good. Letting go and drifting into the unknown. Or something like that! It made sense at the time
I’ve been super excited about this song since we did it, so as a celebration of playing Splendour in the Grass I’m releasing it as a single in time for you to learn the sing-a-long bit so we can all sing-a-long together in a kind of “Glee Goes Indie Spectacular” stylee. I am super excited to have Tim singing it live with me during the set. It’s gonna be awesome.
Enjoy, and sing along!” – Paul
