Twenty-five years after first gifting us his instant Christmas classic How to Make Gravy, Oz’s sonic poet laureate Paul Kelly has released a clip to go with the newly recorded version of the adored song.

Delivered in first person as a letter from an imprisoned man lamenting all the ways he’ll miss Christmas Day celebrations with his fam, How to Make Gravy was initially commission by revered vocalist and producer Lindsay Field for a 1996 festive charity record, created to raise money for the Salvation Army. Pretty soon it snatched the hearts of every Aussie clean outta their chests, and almost won Song of the Year at the ’97 ARIAs (but we can’t stay mad at you, Truly Madly Deeply).

Kelly recently re-recorded the track for his first ever Christmas album, Paul Kelly’s Christmas Train, released just a few weeks ago; read our review of that brilliance right here, and check out our top moments of Kelly’s gorgeous Making Gravy show in Melbourne from a couple weeks back right here.

Lastly, happy Gravy Day everyone! And here’s the brand new clip for the brand new version of the best Christmas song in the land.
