Jimmy Barnes Writes and Records New Song For The Dead Daisies

Jimmy Barnes newest song isn’t on a Barnes or Cold Chisel album, it is on the new album for The Dead Daisies ‘Revolucion’.

Barnes wrote ‘Empty Heart’ with occasional guitarist in his band, Tommy Boyce of The Casanovas. The song was recorded in Sydney in April and features Jimmy’s son Jackie on drums.

“We used Jackie Barnes on drums for most of the tracks on ‘Revolución’, singer John Corabi said. “Jimmy was stopping by on occasion to check on our progress. He spoke with us one day, and offered us a couple of tunes he thought we might like. After listening we all agreed on ‘Empty Heart’. We all thought it was just a great tune”.

The Dead Daisies then sent out the invite to Jimmy to sing on the track with Corabi. “David Lowy spoke with Jimmy, and told him we agreed on ‘Empty Heart’ but, asked Jimmy if we did the song, would he sing on it with me?,” John said. “Jimmy agreed and we tracked it”.

American based Corabi, a one time singer for Motley Crue, didn’t really know much about Jimmy’s history. “Honestly, not being totally familiar with Jimmy’s career I didn’t know what to expect but, God what a voice! I am honored to say I’ve sung with the man, and beyond his talents as a musician, he’s just a great dude to hang with.”

Listen to ‘Empty Heart’ on Soundcloud.

The Dead Daisies ‘Revolucion’, featuring Jimmy Barnes, is out now.

The Dead Daisies will tour Australia with Kiss on October.

Jimmy will headline the Red Hot Summer tour from January.
