‘Big Enough’, the new single by Aussie rascal Kirin J Callinan, may have given us our favourite video clip of the entire year, or maybe even the decade, as he’s roped in the legendary Jimmy Barnes to appear in seriously epic fashion.
The Western-themed clip sees Barnes appearing as a cowboy among the clouds, Mufasa style, where he proceeds to belt out some of his signature screams over Kirin J’s wonky synth beats, making for something both huge and ridiculous in equal measure.
The presence of Molly Lewis and Seekae’s Alex Cameron only makes it all the more spectacular, with Cameron himself no stranger to creating some amazing works of art with his own videos, and The Killers’ Brandon Flowers even claimed he’d made the best music video of 2016.
All we know is that if this track doesn’t become our country’s theme song for the upcoming Commonwealth games, someone has dropped the ball.
You can hear this one on Kirin’s new sophomore album Bravado, which also features one of the best tracks of the year in ‘S.A.D.’, while Kirin recently explained to us the story behind his unexpected move into joyous electropop.
Meanwhile, Jimmy Barnes is collaborating with some other Aussie characters maybe even more colourful than Kirin J Callinan (if that’s possible), as he’s putting a record together with The Wiggles that’ll have adults and kids pretty stoked.
For now, check out Jimmy Barnes’ turn in this incredible cowboy epic below.
