An upcoming documentary about the life of late INXS frontman Michael Hutchence is set to premiere soon, with its soundtrack featuring some previously-unheard tracks.
Next month, Americans will get the chance to see the world premiere of Mystify: Michael Hutchence, a new documentary focused on the life of the titular musical icon.
Set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in America, the new documentary is described as “an intimate look at the life of the INXS lead singer through his many loves and demons,” and will also feature interviews from the likes of Kylie Minogue and Helena Christensen.
Directed by Richard Lowenstein (who not only directed Hutchence in 1986’s Dogs In Space, but also was in charge of INXS’ early videos), the film is yet to receive an Australian release date. However, it is set to feature some rather interesting music on its accompanying soundtrack.
In addition to a number of INXS classics, the soundtrack will also feature “recently discovered, and never-before heard, covers performed by Michael,” according to a recent press release.
Speaking in regards to this announcement, Christopher M. Murphy, Chairman and Founder of Petrol Records, and Creative Director and Global Strategist for INXS notes that, “INXS’ appeal wasn’t just confined to writing great songs or playing some of the best concerts I’ve ever seen.”
