Rock Legend Becomes the 5th Wiggle In New Collaboration

In one of the more unusual collaborations of recent times, Australian rock legend and Cold Chisel frontman Jimmy Barnes has joined forces with The Wiggles to record a new kids album. 

Set for release on March 31, the musical release is named Och Aye The G'Nu and will coincide with a series of books to be released at the start of April. The books centre around a wilderbeest named G'Nu who lives at the Glascow Zoo with his best friend, kangaroo.

The project was inspired by Barnes' grandchildren and his love of Scotland.

No word yet of what colour skivvy the Australian rock God will be donning.
