John Mayer, Rob Thomas and Ben Harper Up for Michael Hutchence Tribute Album


Train star Pat Monahan will also make contribution to pay homage to the former INXS member, playing a new version of 'Beautiful Girl'.

John Mayer, Rob Thomas and Ben Harper have teamed up with Aussie rockers INXS for a tribute album to the band's late frontman Michael Hutchence. "Original Sin", which will hit stores and the internet in January 2011, features the tragic star's hits performed by a group of famous fans and his bandmates.

Stand-out tracks include Harper's take on "Never Tear Us Apart" and a new version of "Beautiful Girl" by Train star Pat Monahan, who jumped at the chance to perform with one of his favorite groups. He tells USA Today, "When they asked what song I wanted, I pulled out a list of about 30. Some may have forgotten how great a band INXS is, but maybe this will remind them, and introduce younger fans."

Michael Hutchence died in 1997.
