It seems that George Michael was working on some new music before his passing last December (2016) and Nile Rodgers hopes those tracks will soon be released.
On Monday (July 10), Rodgers took to his Twitter account to reveal that the “vocals are so hot the faders burned our hands.”
Fans immediately started to ask Rodgers if he could reveal more about the project or give a release date, to which he replied with a link to an interview in which he discusses his work with Michael prior to his death.
He also revealed that he doesn’t have any control over when the music will see the light of day.
“I didn’t want to send it (the music) to him. I had too much respect to send it to the record company,” Nile says in the interview. “So he said ‘I will call you on Christmas.’ I flew back home Christmas Eve. Christmas, I’m sitting in the movie theater waiting for his call back and an alert comes across the screen, George Michael found dead. Unreal.”
Let’s hope we’ll get the chance to hear the new music soon, as we all love and miss the former Wham! star’s voice.
