A new documentary is celebrating the life of Michael Hutchence.
The first trailer for “Mystify”, about the INXS singer who took his own life in 1997 at the age of 37, dropped this week.
In the film, Hutchence’s friends, family, and bandmates remember the troubled singer’s life and career in the spotlight.
“You know when there’s one person in the room that has that special light? That was him,” one friend says in the trailer.
The Australian band came to prominence in the 1980s, releasing a string of hits, including “Need You Tonight”, “New Sensation”, and “Never Tear Us Apart”.
“Mystify” also details the 1992 incident in which Hutchence was cycling and an angry taxi driver pushed him to the ground, causing him to hit his head and lose consciousness.
A brain injury resulting from the altercation caused Hutchence to lose his sense of smell, as well as worsen his depression.
The documentary, directed by Richard Lowenstein, is named after the band’s fifth single “Mystify” from their 1987 breakout album Kick.
