A new song recorded by George Michael before his death in 2016 has been released ahead of its inclusion in a new film featuring his music.

This Is How (We Want You To Get High) is the first original release from the late British artist since 2012, and will be played at the end of upcoming film Last Christmas – a film inspired by Michael’s music.

The singer, who is one of the best-selling artists of all time, passed away from natural causes at his home on Christmas Day in 2016, at the age of 53.

Michael’s new track, which debuted on the BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show, is said to be about societal problems.

A press release about the new song said: “The previously unreleased track, which was recorded during George’s final studio sessions, is his first original material to be shared for seven years.

“The lyrics, written exclusively by George, see the star addressing society’s ills with his trademark blend of self-deprecation and wry humor.”
