George Michael dance album could be set for release

A George Michael dance album is reportedly set for release.

The late icon, who passed away in 2016 at the age of 53, started working on the album in 2011 and it is being prepared for a posthumous release.

The singer-songwriter's friend and creative partner David Austin said that it will "definitely see the light of day”.

He added: "There are dance tracks he recorded and there are some finished products. There are some beautiful finished masters there."

Speaking about the dance album in 2011, George Michael said: "For this album I'm going to be working with either gay or gay-friendly artists, and it'll be a mixture of tracks sung by me and others by young gay artists – possibly unknown ones.

"And I've lined up some really great dance producers to work on it too, so it'll be a pretty stunning record.

"I have to say that gay men's relationship with dance music probably doesn't end at the same time as straight people's does!"

Last year, the CEO of Sony Music Entertainment, Rob Stringer, revealed that new music from the British superstar could be released, but only if agreed upon by his family. 

As yet, a definite release date for the new dance album has not been given.
