INXS are looking back at the video for their song Never Tear Us Apart, 35 years after they filmed it in Prague.

The band shared a new behind-the-scenes video including exclusive interviews with the band and never-before-seen footage, including deleted scenes.

Andrew Farriss, INXS’ co-songwriter, keyboardist and guitarist, said, “I wanted to do something that was very different than what we were doing before,” noting their late frontman Michael Hutchence laughed when he first heard it.

“He thought it was funny because for us it’s so different. I don’t think he took it all that seriously,” 

“And then when he took the tape away and listened to it he came back, he said, ‘I love that. Whatever you’re doing is great.’”

There are also interview clips with Michael in the video, with him talking about their time in Prague filming. “The spirit of the people there is fantastic, that’s what I loved, it really makes you appreciate what you have so much.”

Never Tear Us Apart was the fourth single off INXS’ 1987 album Kick. The song was a top 10 hit for the band, peaking at #7 in the U.S.

The video for the song has been viewed over 101 million times on YouTube.
