In their 33 years as a band, first as the Farriss Brothers, then as INXS, brothers Tim, Jon and Andrew Farriss, along with Kirk Pengilly and Garry Gary Beers have created some of the most enduring music in rock history. On Original Sin, INXS hits are revitalized for a new century and new generations of music listeners. This ambitious project finds the band teaming up with musicians from around the globe featuring superstars like Train's Pat Monahan, Rob Thomas and Ben Harper to up and comers like Dan Sultan, Argentina's Deborah de Corral and DJ Yaleidys of Cuba. From Thomas and Yaleidys' sultry teaming on "Original Sin" and trip-hop superstar Tricky's electrifying "Mediate" to Pat Monahan's emotional "Beautiful Girl," INXS boldly embrace their past and future on one album.
Ben Harper, John Mayer, Tricky Contribute to New INXS Album
INXS will release Original Sin on Jan. 11, 2011. The album will be the first collaboration with the group and their original manager, CM Murphy, in over a decade. It’ll feature the band teaming up with a bevy of guest stars to re-imagine some classic INXS hits.
Ben Harper, John Mayer, Rob Thomas, Train’s Pat Monahan, Tricky and Nikka Costa are all slated to appear. Harper sounds particularly excited to be a part of the project, saying in a statement, “INXS’s material, specifically INXS’s songs, set the table for singers. In my opinion, they’re any singer’s dream songs to sing. Covering ‘Never Tear Us Apart’ is like covering ‘Dock Of The Bay.’ I’m not here to make grandiose overstatements; it’s just a fact, that is one of the greatest soul songs ever written.”
