    Singer Michael Hutchence will live in infamy thanks to his death from auto-erotic asphyxiation, but that hasn't stopped his former band, INXS, from continuing to move forward while paying tribute to his memory. Ironically, Hutchence probably would have been remembered for his songs, as opposed to the shocking way in which he died.

    That said, INXS will release a new album, Original Sin, on January 11. It is the first musical project between INXS and original manager CM Murphy in over a decade. On Original Sin, the band re-recorded several of their signature hits and re-imagined them with different singers, including Ben Harper, Rob Thomas, Nikka Costa and more. Tricky will offer a version of "Mediate" on the album, and Train singer Pat Monahan offers his take on "Beautiful Girl."

    Original Sin will mark the first INXS album released on the revived Atco Records imprint, the band's original label home.

    Are you excited to hear INXS hits revamped with different singers? Who would be on your wish list of contributing singers?
