New George Michael single given posthumous release

A brand new George Michael single will get its first play tomorrow on BBC Radio 2

The late star's publicist has confirmed that the song will be premiered on BBC Radio 2's Breakfast Show with Chris Evans tomorrow morning (September 7).

Between his planned 2017 release, songs kept in limbo during Michael's legal battles in the 1990s and the false starts at following up 2004's Patience, an estimated three albums' worth of material has been left unsurfaced.

Fantasy sounds vastly different to the version that was released as a b-side in 1990, and later as a bonus track on 2011's deluxe version of the Faith album.

Rodgers on Wednesday retweeted a BBC reporter guessing that the track would be "Fantasy", and chimed in on a fan who expressed excitement at hearing the tune Thursday.

The new track, released by Sony Music, comes more than eight months after the death of the singer.

Responding to a fan who said they were uncertain about the new record, he tweeted: 'You SHOULD have mixed feelings. "And Nile reworked the record and that's what you're about to hear now".

The note adds, "We promise we will always try to honour him by staying true to his ambitions and his intentions".

The 53-year-old singer died on Christmas Day 2016 from heart disease and a build-up of fat in his liver, which can be linked to drug and alcohol abuse. "Tears, uncertainty, happiness and love", he said.

News of the single came as his sisters Melanie and Yioda posted an update on his official website, saying they will carry on his musical legacy "exactly as Yog would have wanted".
