Courtney Barnett has covered INXS’ classic track ‘Never Tear Us Apart’ for an Apple Ad supporting same-sex marriage.
The Australian ad is for the iPhone X but it’s central theme is same-sex marriage which is apt given it was legalised in Australia in the latter part of last year.
‘Never Tear Us Apart’ was released back in 1987 and has become one of the most enduring INXS songs.
Barnett’s version of the classic soundtracks numerous fresh couples’ first dance in the ad. It’s unknown if she’s planning to release the entire version of the song or whether it will simply exist in the ad.
There’s plenty of new Barnett music on its way this year though. She plans to release her sophomore solo record Tell Me How You Really Feel on 18th May. She preceded it with first single ‘Nameless Faceless’ just a few weeks ago.
She plans to embark on a world tour at the end of April but no Australian dates have been plotted just yet.
