Press Release:

Wild and wondrous Australian treasure, Kirin J Callinan announces a four-date New Zealand tour this August to celebrate the release of his triumphant new record Return To Sender. 

Joined on the road by Dunedin's psychedelic pop quartet Marlin's Dreaming, Callinan returns to Aotearoa to take on both of its major islands. 

The Dunedin lineup also features very special guests, iconic pop group The Chills. 

Return To Center is Kirin J Callinan’s 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, support slots for everyone from Crowded House to Tame Impala, a role acting in Jane Campion’s Top Of The Lake and an ARIA Award Nomination, ironically it was singing other peoples’ songs that felt like the most truthful next step for the swashbuckling Sydney artist. On Return To Center Callinan’s trademark flamboyance is cut with a newfound fragility that comes curled up in an attempt to do justice to the songs he holds nearest and dearest.
