George Michael is celebrating in musical style

And, just as importantly, he is debuting his first new music since his dangerous battle with pneumonia meant he had to abandon his world tour late last year.

The lyrics of the song, White Light, are clear references to the singer's ill health, his gratitude to the doctors who looked after him, and his fresh exhilaration in being back on his feet, and in the studio. HAVE A LISTEN ABOVE - official video coming soon.

Is it really 30 years?? That's scary!

George Michael has already said that he is giving 1000 concert tickets to the hospital staff who nursed him back to health in hospital in Austria, where he was taken ill.

No doubt they'll be tapping their feet to this.

Meanwhile, here are some memories of the Bad Boys of 1982 - rocking 80s chic like no-one else...
