Wham!’s Andrew Ridgeley says releasing a previously unreleased track in the late singer’s honour would not be appropriate.
George Michael reportedly died leaving three albums of unreleased material in his vaults.
It is well known that Michael never completed a sequel to his 1990 album Listen Without Prejudice Vol 1, though several tracks intended for Vol 2 later appeared on the HIV/AIDS charity album Red Hot + Dance.
He also worked on an album called Trojan Souls in the early ’90s, which was supposed to feature vocals from Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Sade, Seal, Bryan Ferry and Janet Jackson. This too was never finished, though several tracks which were apparently intended for the album have since leaked online.
