JIMMY BARNES
‘MY CRIMINAL RECORD’
(taken from My Criminal Record album out May 2019 through Bloodlines)

‘My Criminal Record is the first new original Jimmy Barnes recording to be released in almost a decade. Co-written with legendary Cold Chisel keyboardist, Don Walker, this gritty song is the title track from Jimmy’s long awaited new studio album, which is finally due in May.

The roots of ‘My Criminal Record’ can be traced back to the traumatic youth documented in Jimmy’s bestselling, award winning memoirs. As he wrote those two harrowing but uplifting books, and performed the intense spoken word tours which accompanied them, he began to write songs which dug even deeper. ‘My Criminal Record’ was one of the first such pieces that arrived alongside the book tours. It seemed to sum up so much of what he’d learned from the experience of revisiting his life, that he took to closing the Working Class Man live show each night with the then unreleased tune; deliberately ushering in ‘the next chapter’ where he returns to what he does best.

Jimmy spits the song’s chorus with his signature venom:

“I keep it locked away somewhere I know
In a cellar that I call my youth
It’s my criminal record
It’s the truth”

Jimmy and his band are currently performing ‘My Criminal Record’ in their live set on the Red Hot Summer Tour, as well as previewing other new songs.

‘My Criminal Record’ looms large as an instant Barnes classic, taking everything he’s learned and everything he’s lived and pouring it out in one searing rock song.
