INXS Hire New Irish Singer

INXS now have an Irish accent.

Irish singer Ciaran Gribbin is their new lead singer.

The band has posted a song called “Tiny Summer” featuring Gribbin on vocals on their web site. Gribbin brings an impressive resume. He co-wrote Madonna’s song “Celebration” that was on her third greatest-hits album, he’s worked with Paul McCartney and Snow Patrol and he has written for film.

Their previous singer, J.D. Fortune, says he was not fired and he did not quit. He says his contract with INXS ended after this summer’sU.S.tour and they part as friends.
