George Michael releases a brand new song, “This Is How”.
The late George Michael has released a brand new track entitled “This Is How”, from the soundtrack of the forthcoming film ‘Last Christmas’, a festive romantic comedy inspired by and featuring the music of George and Wham!. The film began when British film producer David Livingstone spoke of his love of Wham!’s iconic hit “Last Christmas” to the Oscar-winning actor, producer and screenwriter, Emma Thompson. That conversation sowed the germ of a winning idea – to make a film inspired by “Last Christmas”, so in spring 2013, Emma Thompson visited George Michael at his London home, who gave her his blessing.
‘Last Christmas’ is co-scripted by Emma Thompson and stars Emilia Clarke (‘Game Of Thrones’), Henry Golding (‘Crazy Rich Asians’), Michelle Yeoh (‘Tomorrow Never Dies’) and Thompson. The film will arrive in UK cinemas on 15th November. The soundtrack album features three Wham! songs including “Last Christmas” and “Everything She Wants” as well as twelve of George Michael’s best loved solo tracks. All songs were written, arranged and produced by George Michael, except “This Is How” which was co-written and co-produced by George Michael and James Jackman and recorded shortly before the star’s untimely death on Christmas day 2016.
