INXS deliver the second single from their Gold album 'Switch', the stunning 'Afterglow'. Written by Andrew Farriss and Desmond Child, 'Afterglow' is a tender, haunting ballad about the need to both respect, and move on from, the past. An incredibly poignant track, it recalls the strongest elements that have made INXS one of Australia's greatest ever musical exports - an undeniable groove and lyrics that immediately resonate.

I wanted to have a piece of music that included something of a hypnotic Middle Eastern feel. And I feel we achieved that with some elements of the rhythms, chord changes and slow chanting, says Andrew Farriss.

Lyrically I was looking for something that deals quite generically with the sense of loss. But not in a depressing sense. It could be about a family member, someone close, Michael, it could be about loss of any kind. I really wanted to convey a recognition of coming to terms with that loss in a positive way and remembering someone with immense affection. Initially the loss makes you sad, but then you feel that glow of warmth and I think this is something everyone can relate to.

The single comes with non-album track 'Amateur Night' plus the 'Afterglow' video.
