INXS’ ‘Kick’ Album Gets Massive 25th Anniversary Edition Release

Mercury Records

Has it really been 25 years? ’80s favorites INXS will celebrate the 25th anniversary of their most successful album, ‘Kick’ with a three-CD, one-DVD package.

The Second Disc reports that the collection will also come with a hardback book, poster, stickers, and a wealth of bonus materials, including all of the extras from the 2002 Rhino expanded effort and Mercury’s U.K. 2004 deluxe set overseas.

Meanwhile, the Daily Express reports that the video portion will include previously unseen footage of singer Michael Hutchence as well as shots of handwritten lyrics that have never been released publicly.

The band’s manager Chris Murphy stated, “It’ll be an amazing, super-duper package. There’s stuff that was recorded with Michael for ‘Kick’ that didn’t go on the album. The original release back in 1987 spawned such favorites as ‘Need You Tonight,’ ‘Devil Inside,’ ‘New Sensation,’ and ‘Never Tear Us Apart.’

In addition to the ‘Kick’ deluxe release, which is due Sept. 12, the band is making plans to tour their native Australia later this year with new vocalist Ciaran Gribbin, performing the album in its entirety.
