In case you haven’t heard, the video for the new George Michael single, True Faith was completed this morning, and was delivered to Comic Relief. George has hinted that there may possibly be call-backs to the original New Order video (think inflatable suits).
You’ll be able to buy the video on iTunes on the night of March 18. No word as to whether that’s the UK iTunes store only, or if it will be available in other countries.
True Faith is also continuing to hold on to the #1 spots on both the Amazon Best-Selling CD Singles chart (see the live chart) and the Amazon Hot Future CD Single Releases chart (see the live chart). As I said before, I have a feeling being #1 on these charts won’t translate directly into official UK chart positions because downloads are counted in that, but it’s hopefully a good sign that the single will chart highly. Judging from Twitter comments, it seems that the record is growing on people, which is another potentially good sign.
This afternoon, George has done more radio promotion for True Faith, pre-recording interviews at Heart, Magic and Capital. The Capital interview with Johnny Vaughan is scheduled air between 8am and 9am tomorrow (Wednesday) morning. Sounds like it will be worth tuning in for – George tweeted that it’s possibly the funniest interview he’s ever been involved with.
Earlier, on Radio 2, George spoke for about one second on the subject of his new album and tour. It seems the new album may have an electronic slant, a bit like “an electronic version of Faith”. Something to do with listening to house music in gay clubs. There will also be a new tour. George said it would be a very different show to the ones he put on in the past. Previously, he’s been quoted as saying to fans that the new tour would be him singing with a full orchestra. He didn’t repeat that today. Not totally clear how that would fit in with an album with an electronic vibe, but I guess time will tell on that one.

George has been in good form on Twitter in the last 24 hours, tweeting photos of his dogs, his garden and his house. So… watch out housekeeper, watch out driver/dog walker, watch out next-door neighbours,
watch out flowers (oops… the flowers were a mistake), and watch out Kenny is what I say! No-one will be safe from George’s iPhone camera now he’s figured out how to tweet photos😉
