New single

George Michael will release a new single in aid of this year’s Comic Relief, it’s been revealed.

The recently troubled singer will bring out a cover of New Order’s True Faith on March 13.

Comic Relief founder Richard Curtis is delighted at the former man from Wham’s contribution. He said: ‘Over the years, George has been the most tremendous supporter of Comic Relief. Out of the blue one year he gave us all the cash from the release of 'As', his single with Mary J. Blige.

’Then he did a brilliant Little Britain 'Lou and Andy' sketch - which ended with the inevitable insult slung at him - 'I don't like him'.’

He continued: ‘But most excitingly, he's giving Comic Relief all the money from his new single, 'True Faith'. It's always so moving when people stick with us year after year.

’We're thrilled and delighted about the song, and the wonderful video that goes with it. We promise we'll use every penny we make from it to save and change lives in Africa and all over the UK.’

The song, which is arranged and produced by Michael, was originally a hit for New Order in 1987.
