INXS Detail 'Kick' 30th Anniversary Reissue

INXS will celebrate the 30th anniversary of their acclaimed 1987 album Kick with a massive reissue out November 24th.

The new collection will be available as a three-CD/one Blu-ray set that will include previously released demos, remixes and rarities. INXS will also release a new vinyl version of Kick remastered and cut at half-speed over two 180-gram LPs that will spin at 45 RPM. Both sets are available to pre-order.

Along with the rarities and alternate mixes, the four-disc Kick reissue will include a new surround-sound version of the album mixed in Dolby Atmos by producer Giles Martin and engineer Sam Okell. That version of the LP will appear on the Blu-ray disc, which will also feature old promo videos for seven album cuts, plus a new clip for “Kick.”

In a trailer for the Kick reissue, Martin discusses his new mix of the album. “You can hear the elements, you can hear the band, you can hear Michael [Hutchence] close to you, you can hear his breath,” he says, adding: “Kick is a studio album, however [INXS] were a great live band. What you have on this mix we’ve done, is you have the best of both worlds.”
