George Michael premièred his new single White Light today on radio in England. There has also been a lyric video released in advance of it's download release date which will be on August 12th. It will mark the 30 year anniversary of his career in the music industry which began with Andrew in Wham!.
All four of George's previous singles charted within the top 30 in the UK including his cover of New Order's True Faith which got to number 27 in 2011. Incidentally, the last time that George had a top ten hit in the UK was with Flawless (Go to the City) which got to number 8 in 2004. That song brilliantly sampled the dance track Flawless by The Ones. As pop bloggers such as Nick Bassett on his website The Re-View pointed out White Light is a 'definite return to form' and is most similar to the dance tracks on George's 2004 album Patience. That album also included Amazing which was the album's biggest hit and got to number 4 in the UK charts. Shoot the Dog was one of my favourite singles from that album and it got to number 12, it so deserved to be a top ten hit.
Here is the lyric video to White Light.
