A previously unreleased George Michael song will be unveiled later this year via the latest in this long line of pop star themed films we seem to be getting at the moment. The new track appears in ‘Last Christmas’, a new movie that tells the story of an aspiring singer whose hero is Michael.

The film’s director, Paul Feig, has been chatting to BBC News about this previously unheard song that appears on his movie’s soundtrack. “[George] was putting together his new album when he passed [in 2016]”, he explains, “and one of our tracks is one of those songs. It’s just an absolutely amazing song that I’m so excited the world is going to get to hear now”.

The new track closes the film, meaning the whole thing is played, not just a snippet. “When you get a song that has never been heard, you don’t want to just use, like, fifteen seconds of it”, the director adds. “The song starts at the end of the film, and then goes into the credits”.
