On this day in 1987, Australian rock band INXS released the album Kick. Kick went on to become the bands highest grossing album and cemented them in history as one of the greatest bands to ever come out of Australia. The most successful single of Kick and undoubtedly INXS’s most popular song that defined their career was a beautiful synth and string layered ballad titled ‘Never Tear Us Apart’. Never Tear Us Apart reached number 7 on the US billboard charts and was a worldwide hit. To commemorate 25 years of INXS’s Kick and in remembrance of the late Michael Hutchence, we A Better Place give this gift to you: Our interpretation of Never Tear Us Apart, available for free download. Enjoy.
