George Michael, back in business

His new single White Light, inspired by his rollercoaster year, will be shown later this month but, in the meantime, George has released this snap, as well as some tantalising lyrics to show all is on track.

A snippet of White Light...

“I am back.....I am back.....prouder than ever baby......louder than ever maybe..”

Last week saw reports of a Wham! reunion concert to celebrate their 30th anniversary, but George's camp put the dampeners on this, saying the singer was concentrating on his solo resurgence.
