MICHAEL HUTCHENCE, ONE WAY

Michael Hutchence, the iconic frontman of INXS, left an indelible mark on the music world with his charismatic presence and distinctive voice. Recently, fans have been treated to a posthumous release that feels like a time capsule being opened, revealing the track "One Way." This song, alongside another titled "Save My Life," has been brought to life by producer Danny Saber, offering listeners a glimpse into what could have been.

"One Way" stands as a testament to Hutchence's enduring talent and the timeless appeal of his voice. The track, meticulously produced by Saber, manages to capture the essence of Hutchence's artistry while presenting it in a fresh context. Saber, drawing from an a cappella vocal recording left by Hutchence, has fashioned a song that resonates with the depth and passion characteristic of Hutchence's best work. The production is commendable, ensuring that Hutchence's vocals are sharp and at the forefront, surrounded by a musical arrangement that complements without overshadowing.

The song itself is anthemic, embodying a mid-'90s rock vibe that feels both nostalgic and surprisingly contemporary. It's a blend of soul searching, self-doubt, and hope, encapsulating a range of emotions that speak to the listener on a personal level. The big, anthemic quality of "One Way" is precisely what fans would expect from Hutchence, showcasing his ability to convey complex emotions through his music.

Listening to "One Way" is a bittersweet experience. It serves as a reminder of Hutchence's talent and the void his untimely departure left in the music world. However, it also celebrates his legacy, offering fans new material to cherish. Danny Saber's work on this track is not just a tribute but a continuation of Hutchence's artistic journey, allowing his voice to once again captivate and inspire audiences.

Boss Sonics (the label) will be releasing this track and another ("Save My Life") on a 10" picture disc in mid-May (purchase link HERE).
