"Let it Fly" is a studio album by Australian musician, Diesel and his first studio set of originals since 2008 and features his 18 year-old daughter Lila Gold on "If You Let Me Give". On the album, Diesel said "It's all of my life's work so far brought to fruition, in many ways. It’s pretty encompassing. There's a lot of stuff I've never tried before either – like, there are folk elements that are quite different for me ... I guess when you start using mandolin and fiddle, it’s gonna happen!"
Diesel promoted the album in July/August 2013 with a series of 'Fans First' shows, where he showcased the new material followed by a Q&A session. He then toured the album nationally from October 2013 and concluded in May 2014 in Geelong.
