George Michael To Drop New Album ‘Symphonica’ In March

Christina Lee / January 20, 2014

George Michael will release a new live album, Symphonica, on March 17. The 14-song set features orchestral rearrangements of his own hits, plus select covers (Roberta Flack’s “The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face,” Trent D’Arby’s “Let Her Down Easy,” Elton John’s “Idol”) that were recorded during his 2011-2012 tour of the same name.

Symphonica arrives two year after the star canceled a string of Australian tour dates to get treatment for anxiety, which stemmed from a 2011 health scare. (He said that he had a “touch and go” battle with pneumonia.) The album is co-produced by 14-time Grammy-winner Phil Ramone (Billy Joel, Cyndi Lauper, Madonna), who died at age 72 last year.
