Aussie rockers INXS will team up with renowned Beatles re-mixer Giles Martin to repackage the band for a new generation of music fans. Giles said: “so great to be back in Australia with these lovely people. I owe you so much, you gave me my break all those years ago. Thank you. X
The Grammy-winning producer and composer will remix and extend the band’s studio albums and oversee their release as a theatre show.
Giles will also have input on an upcoming documentary on the band – The Untold Story of INXS.
INXS collaborated with Martin in 2017 for the 30th-anniversary remix at Abbey Road Studios of the band’s multi-platinum album Kick in Dolby ATMOS.
The album, which sold over six million copies worldwide since its release in 1987, made INXS one of the biggest bands.
Giles Martin is best known for his double Grammy-winning work with his father in 2004 on the Beatles-Cirque du Soleil show soundtrack Love.
Following his father’s death in 2016, Giles has become the unofficial custodian of the Beatles music.In recent years he has overseen new high-definition mixes of the band’s music, restoration of the audio from early concerts and preparation of the Beatle’s catalogue for streaming.
INXS’s updated albums will be released via Universal Music Group in partnership with Petrol Records.
