He’s Back! Wham alum George Michael has released his new track White Light. And the chorus sings Hallelujah. The official release date isn’t until July 17th but there are already a slew of remixes already floating around online and word is the single has been released to radio.
Give a listen to and find your own significance within Michael’s lyrics which, for us, is clearly about his own dark days and surviving what seemed like a never-ending downward low point that culminated with the icon serving time in a London jail. Our own personal take on the songs message, which juxtaposes Michael and Amy Winehouse’s untimely demise, is simply about his coming through it all and, as the song declares, he is still here.
We couldn’t be happier for the 49 year old Greek turned Brit. And in fabulous retro fashion, Michael’s video will feature the last of the super models – Kate Moss. Now we just need to work on getting him cleared to tour in the USA!
George Michael is an iconic musical god! His library of tunes, till this day, remain poetry in motion. And who the fuck can do better – or has ever done better, in some hot pink neon booty-shorts than Georgie circa Wham! Nobody, that’s who.
In his latest interview with The Guardian, G drops it like its hot and gives full disclosure to his “public” life, sets boundaries on what constitutes his “private” life and hints at his musical return! He even has a new X-Mas song. “I’ve got some great stuff, and I don’t know whether I should release it or hold on to it. It uses my supposed infamy on my own terms,” Michael states. Whoohooo. And the choir sings, Amen!
Me thinks this piece is fabulously candid and should be used as a standard stateside for celebs as to what constitutes a real interview.
I especially love how Simon Hattenhouse brings Michaels’ word to close it out: “People want to see me as tragic with all the cottaging and drug-taking… those things are not what most people aspire to, and I think it removes people’s envy to see your weaknesses.” He stops. “I don’t even see them as weaknesses any more. It’s just who I am.”
If that isn’t a man who’s found his own freedom, than I know not what is… Bravo!
