A new documentary about iconic Australian rock band INXS will feature two unreleased songs of the late front-man Michael Hutchence.
Due to premiere next month at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, the documentary will be called Mystify, alluding to the bands 1987 hit song. The two unheard songs were recorded before the singer’s death in 1997, when he was 37.
New documentary Mystify is set to feature two unreleased recordings of INXS and delves into the incredible life of lead singer Michael Hutchence.
Mystify is directed by Richard Lowenstein , who also directed more than a dozen of INXS’ music videos, whilst Petrol Records are behind the soundtrack to the film. Chairman and founder of the company Christopher M Murphy stated:
“INXS’ appeal wasn’t just confined to writing great songs or playing some of the best concerts I’ve ever seen. They always had their collective antennae up to the latest trends – whether they be music, fashion or technology – and that’s given their brand a fresh and lasting outlook. Their legacy is growing every day, and a new generation of fans from around the world are discovering INXS through streaming.”
This increase in young people learning about iconic bands from the past shines a ray of light on the impact music can have on everyone, no matter how young or old. Music is timeless.
