Colin Hay has re-recorded his classic Men At Work hit ‘Down Under’ minus the flute riff.
Hay told The Australian that he wanted to make a new version of the song minus the flute solo to prove that it didn’t make any difference to the song.
The case sent Men At Work flutist and co-writer Greg Ham into a downward spiral. He committed suicide in April.
The new version of the song will be used in a Telstra commercial. It will be released through iTunes next Friday. (July 27, 2012).
