George Michael Confirms The Release Of His New Album



For all George Michael fans out there, we have some great news for you. The pop superstar is coming back to the charts with a new album!

More than a decade after his previous album, the British singer has confirmed the rumour about Symphonica, his sixth solo album. The album is scheduled to appear on shelves in March, and will consist of orchestral covers of his classical tracks. The album will also include “My Baby Just Cares for Me” by Nina Simone.

This is George’s first record since 2004’s Patience, and it was produced by Phil Ramone before he died last March. Ramone’s work includes collaborations with Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin and many others, so we can expect a real masterpiece. It was recorded during the 2011-2012 tour, which failed due to Michael’s severe bouts with pneumonia.

On his website, fans can also download a free song as a teaser. What’s more, the singer has also made a making-of documentary about his newest album.

Since his website was recently shut down and the background image was changed to closed stage curtains, Michael was forced to deny the rumours that he was going to give up making music.

Virgin EMI/Universal Music Group will release the album in three versions, standard 14-track album, deluxe 17-track album, and as a Blu-ray disc.
