Return To Center is Kirin J Callinan’s new record, a reconnection with what made him fall in love with music over and over throughout the years, and a very personal exploration of the timeless songwriting tradition passed down and reinterpreted from one generation to the next. Following two albums of inimitable, challenging pop music that garnered global acclaim and marked Callinan as entirely unique, a singular talent, nominations for the Australian Music Prize and support slots for everyone from Crowded House to Tame Impala, ironically it was singing other peoples’ songs that felt like the most truthful next step for the swashbuckling Sydney artist.
Return To Center collects Callinan reworks of both all-time favourites and last-minute spontaneous additions, songs that have shaped the artist he is today amongst songs that were jammed out of the blue in the studio. It retains an instinctive, vulnerable edge, emerging as Callinan’s most tender yet celebratory record yet.
Following a chaotic sold out headline show at Hoxton Bar and Kitchen in 2017, Callinan returns to play Omeara.
