Paul Field - 'Love Songs For Lonely People'
'Love Songs For Lonely People' marks the first-ever solo album from former Cockroaches frontman and industry icon Paul Field.
Field began the project at the start of 2020, where he recorded the vocals for ‘Valentine’s Day’ in Brisbane. Before international travel was stopped, he travelled to Nashville to directed and film the video for the track. After concluding he wanted a duet partner for the song, he called his good mate Kasey Chambers where she added her iconic vocal stylising, emotionally rich vocal tones and elevating the song to a new level. After recording her vocals she said to Paul, “I hope I didn’t fu#k it up”, Paul laughed and said, “You’ve got to be kidding me. It’s sublime!".
‘Love Songs For Lonely People’ is a combination of new originals and covers of songs special to him. “Some of these songs I’ve been singing since I was a teenager. The common element with all of these songs is that I love them, and it was always a desire to record them one day” says Paul.
Featured on the album are friends Jimmy Barnes, Ria Pirelli, Chris E Thomas and Elly-May Barnes. Featured on all tracks playing the guitar is Bill Chambers. The majority of ‘Love Songs For Lonely People’ was recorded at Jimmy Barnes own studio in Sydney and is co-produced by Paul’s brother John, who wrote and co-wrote some of the biggest hits for The Cockroaches and The Wiggles and co-wrote ‘This Way to Love and Happiness’ & ‘Alison (You’re The One)’.
