Legendary INXS Lead Singer’s Unreleased Solo Song Now Available for the First Time through Fashion Designer Astrella



Michael Hutchence’s first solo recording to be released in 15 years will be exclusively available via Fashion Designer Astrella’s Next MUSICAL T’s™ Design Crafted By Pop & Graffiti Artist Miguel Paredes


Iconic INXS Lead Singer, Michael Hutchence, will forever be in the hearts and dance moves of fans across the world. Although known for his hit band songs “Need You Tonight” and “Never Tear Us Apart,” he also embarked on many solo projects. In a partnership with fashion designer Astrella, daughter to folk rock singer Donovan, Hutchence’s first solo recording to be released in 15 years will now be available through her famed hybrid, t-shirt collection known as MUSICAL T’s™.

Previously unreleased and available only through this package, Michael Hutchence’s song “Friction” will be available for pre-order. Sales will officially begin September 1, 2015. The “Friction” MUSICAL T’s™ was designed by internationally recognized graffiti and pop artist Miguel Paredes. The song came from his recording sessions in 1995, before his tragic death, to create a solo record with music producers Danny Saber and Andy Gill.

Saber said, “I’m stoked that Michael’s song will be released through Astrella’s collection. Michael and I really loved working together. I think he would be pleased to see his music dropped through a concept so revolutionary. The music world has had economic hits due to the changing landscape of marketing in the industry and this unique idea is just what we needed.”
