OMG, what great news! Nearly 20 years after the tragic accidental death of INXS lead singer Michael Hutchence, music he recorded before his passing will finally be released. Keep reading for when we’ll be getting our first new songs from the sexy and charismatic rocker.
So exciting! The late Michael Hutchence‘s music will be introduced to a whole new generation this fall as previously unreleased tracks he laid down before his 1997 death at age 37 will finally be made public. The singer fronted the Aussie band INXS through the 1980’s and ’90s and had a slew of timeless hits, so the new songs coming out should be an amazing treat for music lovers.
It’s been nearly 20 years since Michael passed and Sydney recording studio owner Ron Creevey has spent the past two years gathering the iconic singer’s never before heard music with LA-based record producer Danny Saber. “I heard some time ago about some unreleased music that was sitting out there and then I approached (Hutchence’s) trust directly,” Ron told the Daily Mail.
“At least five songs are brilliant. There’s going to be two duets that will come out with two very big artists that I can’t legally name at the moment and then there are singles he did himself,” Ron shared. Hmmm, we’re SO curious to know who those singers are, but we’d have to go back to the late 1990’s to remember who was a superstar then.
Danny produced Michael’s posthumous self-titled solo album released in 1999 and was working with the singer on new music up until his untimely death. “Me and him sort of connected and started writing towards the end. It’s sort of like a little treasure trove of stuff – essentially there were vocals and ideas and that’s the stuff that I’m reworking and we’re going to be releasing,” Danny said.
The pair hope to release the first song in Nov. with a full documentary about the star’s last years of life due in 2017, the 20 year anniversary of Michael’s death and the 40 year anniversary of INXS’ founding. Yep, the band had been together two decades when Michael tragically passed.
