George Michael says new album will be his most radio-friendly for a long time

George Michael has revealed his new studio album will be his most radio-friendly for a long time.

The 49-year-old, who is currently working on the follow-up to 2004’s 'Patience,' told Austria’s that he hopes to release the as-yet-untitled record next year:

“I'm back in the studio working very hard and love it. I would say this album is in terms of content somewhere between Faith and Older and is perhaps the most radio-friendly music [I've produced] for a very long time. I'm sure my fans will like it."

The former Wham singer, who recently dedicated a concert in Vienna to the staff who monitored his recovery from pneumonia, went on to defend his decision to perform new single, 'White Light,' at the Olympics closing ceremony:

"The lyrics seemed to me especially appropriate for the occasion. Of course they play on my fight with pneumonia, but the message can also accompany one of the overarching themes of the Olympic Games, namely overcoming adversity and physical stamina."
