Why INXS' New Release Is Making Jaws Drop
A second track from the already-critically acclaimed Michael Hutchence documentary has been released, and it contains something that’s making jaws drop.
Mystify – Michael Hutchence is a feature-length doco about the troubled heart and soul of Michael Hutchence directed by filmmaker Richard Lowenstein who collaborated extensively with the band throughout their career directing eighteen INXS videos as well as three for Hutchence solo projects.
Following the release of the soundtrack’s first single, Spill The Wine, the curtain has been pulled back on a new version of Please (You Got That) by INXS and Ray Charles.
But, get this: listeners of this version will hear in-studio banter between Hutchence and Charles.
The album is divided up into four sections; Side A, Side B, Side C and Side D all of which mix into each other giving the listener a more profound dreamlike experience than the usual soundtrack.
A recent screening at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York made headlines around the world. Screen Daily has lauded the film as showing that Hutchence ‘Belongs in the same company as Mick Jagger, Jim Morrison, and Robert Plant’, and that the film ‘is a more than worthy tribute.’
‘Please (You Got That…)’ was originally released as a single and recorded at Charles’ studio in LA in 1993.
