Hutchence\'s long-in-the-works solo album, Michael Hutchence, was finally released in 1999. He had begun working on the album in 1995 and had last worked on it 3 days prior to his untimely death. The last song he recorded was \"Possibilities\". It was co written and co produced by Hutchence and a gaggle of collaborators - Andy Gill from Gang of Four, Tim Simenon of Bomb The Bass, and Danny Saber from Black Grape. It featured a duet with U2\'s Bono called \"Slide Away\"; Bono actually recorded his vocals after Hutchence\'s death. The movie, Limp, was also released in 1999 and featured a cameo by Hutchence, playing a record company A & R man. (Hutchence had filmed the scene in 1996 on a day off from working on INXS\' Elegantly Wasted.)
INXS lead singer Michael Hutchence began work on what would become his posthumous solo album in 1995. Following his death in 1997 (a possible suicide), Black Grape producer Danny Saber and ex-Gang of Four guitarist Andy Gill completed the album. U2 singer, and Hutchence\'s friend, Bono recorded lyrics which were added to the track \"Slide Away.\" The album was finally released in 1999 and was largely overlooked due to lack of promotion by the label V2.
Michael also recorded the songs, \"Let The People Talk\" and \"Standing On The Rooftop\" for this album but it didn\'t make the album.They acted as b-sides for the singles \"Straight Line\" and \"Slide Away\".
This album was simply dedicated to \"Tiger\". This is in reference to his daughter, Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence.
