Projects > Michael Hutchence Solo Album
Michael Hutchence is the debut (and only) solo album by INXS frontman Michael Hutchence. It was released on 14 December 1999.
Hutchence began work on what would become his posthumous solo album in 1995. Following his death in 1997, Black Grape producer Danny Saber and ex-Gang of Four guitarist Andy Gill completed the album. U2 singer, and Hutchence's friend, Bono recorded lyrics which were added to the track "Slide Away."
The sole commercial single—"A Straight Line"—also included the B-side "Standing on the Rooftop" written by Gill and Hutchence and recorded during these sessions and the Max Q song "The Passenger". The song "Let the People Talk" was also released digitally on the Internet.
This album was simply dedicated to "Tiger" in reference to Hutchence's daughter, Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence.
