During the world tour in support of 1997's Elegantly Wasted, INXS frontman Michael Hutchence was found dead in a Sydney hotel room. His first (and only) solo album came out in 1999, although he'd been working on it since 1995. Hutchence's pal Bono recorded lyrics which were added to the song "Slide Away." The record was dedicated to his daughter Tiger (a.k.a. Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence), who was just a year old when her father died.
