INXS have sacked their singer JD Fortune for the second time.

The frontman, who secured his place in the band after winning the 2005 reality TV show Rock Star: INXS, was previously fired in 2009. At the time he said had been left "alone" and homeless by the band.

His latest sacking comes after a new song, 'Tiny Summer', was posted on the band's official website INXS.com with a mystery Irish vocalist on board. You listen to their new track on Soundcloud.com/inxs now.

Fortune also wrote on his Twitter page Twitter.com/jdfortunemayhem last month: "As of now I have not been invited to be a part of INXS's new music."

The band is expected to release a statement on Fortune's departure this week as well as name its new singer, reports the Herald Sun.

He only sang one song on the band's last album, the guest vocalist LP 'Original Sin'.

Original INXS singer Michael Hutchence died in 1997.
