Original Sin actually has a spin to it. The band says it’s a “re-imagined” collection of INXS’ signature hits, with guest performers that include Ben Harper, Rob Thomas, Pat Monahan, Tricky, Nikka Costa and a few others.
The album is actually set for release on April 5, but AOL will stream it until March 7. So, if you want to check out what they’ve been up to, here’s your chance.
INXS was founded in Australia in 1977, with a lineup fronted by singer Michael Hutchence, Gary Garry Beers on guitar and keyboards, and the three Farriss brothers: Andrew on bass, Jon on drums and Tim on lead guitar.
They eventually hit it big as international stars, with hits that included “New Sensation,” “What You Need” add “The One Thing.”
But the band hit the skids in 1997 due to Hutchence’ controversial death, officially classified as a suicide. INXS shut down for a year, but then re-emerged with other vocalists until, in 2004, launched Rock Star: INXS, a reality TV show to pick a new singer. The show put them back on the map and gave them J.D. Fortune on vocals.
Now here they are again, with a new look to their hits.
