George Michael - This Is How (We Want You To Get High) (Lyric Video)
Not afraid to admit that I'm sobbing my heart out. Oh George.
"Shortly before his death, George Michael recorded a handful of songs for a new album and a new George Michael song will be released tomorrow. According to co-writer and co-producer, James Jackman, it is one of four songs that Michael completed for an album he was recording at the time of his death. “They are great songs. George was in a good space, excited about the future, confident that he was going to come back with a bang. It would have been an upbeat positive album, a 21st Century Faith. It’s a shame it wasn’t finished.” “Those of us who were close to him saw his hunger and motivation in those last months. He was back in the studio working on new material, he’d got his driving license back, he was talking about getting a new puppy. It was a complete shock when I got that call on Christmas day.” Although George had been working on a new album Jackman does not believe it will ever see the light of day. “There is fantastic material but it’s not finished. They were sketches, lyric ideas, parts of verses and choruses. His family want to honour George’s memory so they won’t be pulling half-finished demos out of the vault.”Four tracks, had been fully completed by George himself, The remaining three unreleased George Michael songs will “all see the light of day, but in what form we don’t know yet” according to Jackman. “They were made with great care, when he was at the top of his game, and it was incredible to be a part of. He was one of the greatest singer-songwriter’s this country has ever produced. This stuff is as good as anything he ever recorded.”
