George Michael's new single, released posthumously has been shared for new movie

George Michael

Although Jackman does not believe that the album will ever see the light of day, "This Is How (We Want You To Get High)" will appear on the soundtrack to the upcoming film "Last Christmas".

In a statement, George's family said they hoped fans everywhere would "rejoice in hearing this great new song written as ever with Yog's huge passion and pride".

The song comes seven years since Michael released his last material and 35 years after Wham! brought us "Last Christmas". I just thought of an idea to do with the lyric of "Last Christmas" that inspired me, and then I thought, "Oh, actually, so much of George's other music really works with this idea'".

Called This Is How (We Want You To Get High), the supple, funky track was recorded during the star's final studio sessions in 2015.

Work on This Is How began in 2012, shortly after the singer completed his Symphonica Tour, with the recording taking place in various sessions at London's Air Studios.

The song features acoustic guitars and an upbeat vibe. The first, which was recorded during his final recording sessions, has been released. Thompson visited George at his North London home in the Spring of 2013 to talk through her ideas for the screenplay.

Thompson recently discussed how the star gave her his personal blessing before his death, aged 53, in 2016.

'[He loved] all of these themes in the movie; he was passionate about homelessness, and he had this great social conscience.

It arrives as Last Christmas, a forthcoming film devoted to his decades spanning discography and named after his legendary festive single, prepares for release across the United Kingdom on November 15. The actress and screenwriter then developed various versions of the script before George's sudden passing on Christmas Day 2016.

The titular song won't be the only tune from Wham! to be included, and viewers can expect to hear "Everything She Wants" and "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" in the movie as well, Billboard previously reported.
