George Michael gave the world some of the greatest ever pop songs including arguably the greatest ever Christmas record. Now, some 35 years on from the iconic Last Christmas, another festive treat has come for his millions of fans across the world.

This Is How (We Want You to Get High), released yesterday, was recorded during George’s final studio sessions, is his first original material to be shared for seven years.

It’s a funky, upbeat classic, that provides the perfect finale to Last Christmas, a new romantic comedy inspired by the music of George Michael and Wham!, which is released on 15 November by Universal Pictures.

The film was inspired by the eponymous Wham! hit, and has a soundtrack featuring three Wham! tracks and twelve songs from George Michael’s solo career. Director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, Mad Men) describes the movie as “a love letter to George”.

The film was co-scripted by Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson, who stars alongside Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians).
