George Michael - Singer/Songwriter
George Michael continues his extraordinary career when he releases 'Symphonica' on March 17.

Produced by Phil Ramone and George Michael, 'Symphonica' will be released on a hardback deluxe, 17-track CD edition; a standard 14-track CD; a standard 14-track digital version; a deluxe 17-track digital version and on pure audio Blu-Ray through Virgin EMI/Universal Music Group.

Also on March 17, Symphonica's lead single 'Let Her Down Easy' will be released on iTunes/digital platforms accompanied by a new video directed by Vaughan Arnell.

The 'Symphonica' album was recorded during George's successful 2011-12 tour of the same name, a labour of love which fulfilled George's long-standing ambition of showcasing his extraordinary vocals alongside an orchestra in some of Europe's finest, most prestigious venues.

Like the tour, the 'Symphonica' album comprises lovingly arranged and sung versions of carefully selected highlights from George's sumptuous back catalogue plus interpretations of songs by some of George's favourite artists.

To coincide with the announcement of 'Symphonica', George Michael is donating a track from the album - 'Praying For Time' - for free download.
