"Heaven Sent" is the first single by INXS taken from their eighth studio album Welcome to Wherever You Are. It was released only in Europe, Japan and Australia. The song was written by Andrew Farriss who explained on the liner notes of the 1992 remaster: "Originally I wrote the song as a 3/4ballad. The band heard it and rocked it up to make it the recording it became. The vocal effect helped give the track some extra attitude." 
The b-sides included two solo compositions from Andrew Farriss; "It Ain't Easy", and Tim Farriss; "11th Revolution" as well as, "Deepest Red", a full band outtake from the X album written by Michael Hutchence and Jon Farriss. The 12" picture disc (UK) and also the Australian CD5 single included a demo version of "Heaven Sent (Gliding version)" instead of "Deepest Red".
