One of 15 artists who contributed to the Songs for Australia benefit album,The National, have chosen to cover one of Australia’s most iconic songs, INXS‘s “Never Tear Us Apart”. Available now on all digital platforms, the band was thrilled to be able to contribute to the project and dove straight into recording and delivered this simply stunning version of a classic. Artwork for the “Never Tear Us Apart” single was kindly donated by Australian photographer Chris Searl. Fans can catch The National touring Australia this March & April.
Songs for Australia is an extraordinary album made by a collection of global artists who have each donated their time to record a cover of an Australian song. The album was made to raise money for organizations in Australia who are working towards creating a better future for the country and helping to rebuild during and after the bushfire crisis. At the heart of the record is Australian songwriter and musician Julia Stone, who pulled the album together and contributed her version of Midnight Oil’s “Beds Are Burning”. Stone recently spoke with Rolling Stone about putting the project together – read the full interview here.
You can view further information on the project including the track listing and nominated charities on the dedicated website www.songsforaustralia.com.
The record is available to pre-order at www.songsforaustralia.com with exclusive limited-edition bundle options also available including personalized vinyl artwork, tote bags, T-shirts and more. The songs will be digitally released Thursday March 12 through BMG, with the album released on vinyl and CD in June.
