George Michael confirms exciting new single release
British icon George Michael has confirmed details of a brand new single that he will release to "commemorate" the 30th anniversary of the launch of his first single, 'Wham Rap'.
In an official statement, the 'Faith' sensation announced that the track is called 'White Light' and will be made available on June 29:
"Hi everyone. On the 29th of June this year it will be 30 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 30 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."
"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."
The tracklisting for the single bundle is as follows:
