Australian experimental musician Kirin J Callinan has shared a video for a new track, “The Whole of the Moon,” which is a cover of a 1985 song by Scotland’s The Waterboys. Michael Hili directed the video, which was shot in one day in New York City and is very theatrical, featuring Callinan miming. The Francois Tetaz-produced track is said to be the first taste of an upcoming new album on Terrible Records, which would be the follow up to 2017’s Bravado. Check it out below, followed by The Waterboys’ original and Callinan’s upcoming U.S. tour dates, including some shows at SXSW this week.

A press release announcing the track described the musician this way: “Kirin J Callinan is an apex predator. A butterfly. A grassfire. A beautiful baby boy wandered curiously into trouble. You’re listening to something very specific when you’re hearing Kirin J express himself. And you’re right to be wondering if this mania, this insanity, this total abandon exists within all of us. Makes you wonder if you’ve just missed out. If you’re a coward for never trying. If you were ever on the field in the first place. Out there is a pendulum that swings recklessly between madness and precision.”

Check out our 2017 interview with Kirin J Callinan on Bravado and the accompanying photo-shoot we did with him as he was getting a shave and a haircut at a Washington DC barbershop.
