Since 2014, Borrowed Verse has worked with 17 incredible musicians and poets from around Australia, including acclaimed songwriter Ben Salter and award-winning poet Herb Wharton. Artists are currently working on new songs for the album, including Augie March frontman Glenn Richards and Angie Hart, one of the songwriting forces behind art-pop legends Frente!

Reflecting a life spread across two continents, 'Impossible Preludes' continues Taylor’s restless probing of the contradictions of life and language. Here are love poems, poems about language and silence, an elegy for a cat, and an interview with a querulous mathematician, as well as poems dealing with the cruelties of contemporary world politics, ageing, and delight in nature. Once again, the collection shows the stimulating range of tone and style that has been a hallmark of all his poetry.
