George Michael set for Wham reunion?
Thu, 21 Jun 2012 10:02a.m.
British singer George Michael is releasing a new song later this month to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Wham!'s first single.
‘Wham Rap! (Enjoy What You Do)’ hit stores in June 1982 and went on to reach number eight in the UK chart, and Michael is marking the milestone with a new track.
‘White Light’ is set for release in August, and the star says, "On the 29th of June this year it will be 30 years to the day that ‘Wham Rap’, my first single, written with Andrew Ridgeley, (on an afternoon that the two of us should have been at school!), entered the British charts.
"To celebrate and commemorate those 30 wonderful years I am releasing my most recent song, ‘White Light’, to radio on the exact anniversary of that chart date.
"Although I know the music industry tradition on such occasions is to list the hundreds of millions of albums sold, the number of records broken and awards received over all those years, I would simply like to say thank you."
The new release comes amid unconfirmed reports Michael will reunite with his Wham! bandmate Ridgeley for a one-off gig this year.
