As he films trippy new video '99'...

Barns Courtney isn't someone to hold back.

Already working on his second album - he's well under way, we're told - he recently dropped new single '99'.

A flamboyant return, the single matches that potent, irresistibly contagious single to lyrics imbued with real purpose.

Barns comments: "'99' is a song about losing touch with your former self and the needless formalisation of fun in our daily lives as we age. I guess I felt like I escaped the usual tropes of adulthood through music. This video is an imagining of life on a different path. And a an insight into my own struggles with identity, and the bizarre ritual of growing up."

The video is a real trip, a colourful, at times hilarious return that showcases his inherent creativity.
