One of 15 Artists who contributed to the ‘Songs for Australia’ album, The National have chosen to cover one of Australia’s most iconic songs, INXS’s ‘Never Tear Us Apart’. Available now on all digital platforms, the band were thrilled to be able to contribute to the project and dived straight in to record and deliver this simply stunning version of a classic. Artwork for the ‘Never Tear Us Apart’ single was kindly donated by Australian Photographer Chris Searl.
