Courtney Barnett Covers INXS’ ‘Never Tear Us Apart’ In New iPhone X Ad

Australian Apple ad celebrates same-sex marriage

While same-sex marriage has only been legal in Australia since December of 2017, Apple has already unveiled a helluva cool ad in celebration of the country’s late arrival to the party. Apple’s iPhone X “First Dance” spot features Melbourne native Courtney Barnett covering INXS’ 1987 hit “Never Tear Us Apart.”

Barnett’s sophomore solo effort Tell Me How You Really Feel arrives on May 18th, and while her INXS cover is not slated to be on the album, it will certainly garner its share of streams and downloads whenever Apple makes it available.
