Australian multi-artist, Kirin J Callinan shares new single “Crazier Idea.” The new track follows previous single “Eternally Hateful” – both taken from Callinan’s forthcoming album If I Could Sing, set for release on Friday 2 February via Worse Records / [PIAS].

Expanding on the concept and creation of the song, Kirin expresses, ‘When the spirit comes to play, the game she plays is real, for those of us who fly… we fly into the sun, we’re chasing after one Crazier Idea’ begins ”Crazier Idea’, clueing us in to the inspired, playful three & a half minute, possibly crazy idea that’s about to transpire. If there was truly any doubt whether I could indeed sing, as the album title suggests, it is surely dispelled here.

As a guitarist and writer, Kirin has collaborated with Connan Mockasin to Weyes Blood, Mac Demarco to Mark Ronson, contributing guitar to the latter’s album Uptown Special (alongside Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker and David Bowie guitarist Carlos Alomar), and most recently working with Caroline Polachek on her latest album Desire, I Want To Turn Into You.

Kirin is one of only two features (the other being Korn’s Jonathan Davis) on goth metal new guard Kim Dracula’s debut hyper genre-mash-monstrosity “A Gradual Decline In Morale”; and also co-wrote and performs the majority of songs, along with the only lyrical feature, on Ghanaian Australian artist Genesis Owusu’s debut album, Smiling With No Teeth and this years The Struggler.
