Aussie rap hero 360 and former Silverchair frontman and Australian rock god Daniel Johns have finally unveiled Impossible, the long-awaited lead single from 360’s upcoming third album, Utopia, signalling the return of an iconic Australian rock voice that we haven’t heard in a while. The epic clip was directed by Patrick Fileti in Sydney and also marks the first time Johns has been in front of a camera since Silverchair’s last video, six years ago.
Impossible is one of two collaborations with Johns found on Utopia, which also features contributions from The Living End frontman Chris Cheney and new beats supplied by producers Lifted and Styalz Fuego. The album will also mark the first release to be unveiled by the rapper’s new imprint, Forthwrite, which he shares with fellow rapper and sidekick, Pez.
According to Johns, the track “began as a songwriting experiment for [360’s] record,” which transformed into a dirty and propulsive, dubstep-infused monster. “Coming back after three years, I know Impossible is not the most poppy song,” said 360. “I know it’s quite confronting. It’s really glitchy and dirty. I didn’t want to do a typical dubstep song, I wanted something nasty.” And he has well and truly delivered.
