George Michael is releasing a new single, ‘White Light’ on August 12, 2012. Rather than rabbit on ourselves, here's George himself to tell you all about it:
Hi everyone. On the 29th of June this year it will
be thirty years to the day that ‘Wham Rap’, my first single, written with
Andrew Ridgeley, (on an afternoon that the two of us should have been at
school!), entered the British charts. To celebrate and commemorate those thirty
wonderful years I am releasing my most recent song, ‘White Light’, to radio on the exact anniversary of that chart date.
Although I know the music industry tradition on
such occasions is to list the hundreds of millions of albums sold, the number
of records broken and awards received over all those years, I would simply like
to say thank you.
Most of my fans realise that I dreamed of a career
as a singer/songwriter from an early age, but never in my wildest imaginings
could I have known that I would still be here thirty years later, healthy,
happy, and feeling that I still have so much more music to give. It is
miraculous in so many ways. Fate has been so kind to me, as have the millions
of people that that have bought records and come to see me play year after year
I am truly blessed, and ‘White Light’ is my thank you to everybody who has been a part of my
success. And I mean everybody, including the press!! Long may it continue.
All my love,
George Michael xxx
