The surviving members of INXS — accompanied, presumably, by frontman/game show winner J.D. Fortune — will mount a 25-date North American tour this summer in support of the band’s ‘Original Sin’ collection of re-recorded greatest hits. Berlin opens at least 11 of the U.S. shows.

This week’s new releases include INXS’s disc of re-recorded hits with all-star vocalists (‘Original Sin’), two reissues from The Church (‘Seance,’ ‘Heyday’), a new studio album from ex-Dream Syndicate frontman Steve Wynn (‘Northern Aggression’), a New Model Army box set (‘Anthology’) and the domestic reissue of The Teardrop Explodes’ ‘Kilimanjaro.’
The surviving members of INXS finally have unveiled the tracklist and release dates for their long-in-the-works ‘Original Sin’ greatest-hits collection, featuring re-recordings of the band’s classics with new vocals by the likes of Ben Harper, Rob Thomas, Tricky and even occasional frontman J.D. Fortune.
INXS tonight debuted the first track off their upcoming album of re-imagined hits, a new arrangement of ‘Kick’ smash ‘Never Tear Us Apart’ with Ben Harper filling in on lead vocals for the late Michael Hutchence.
The remaining members of INXS this week released a new 16-track digital-only best-of called ‘Platinum: Greatest Hits’ that will appeal to diehard fans mostly for the ample bonus it comes with: ‘Seriously Live,’ a 26-song double live album that spans the band’s 30-year career.
