Finally! Sony Music shares ‘Fantasy’, a super tune by the late George Michael featuring Nile Rodgers. The sparkling track was intended to feature on George Michael’s massive second solo album, ‘Listen Without Prejudice Vol.1’.
“In early 2016, George was looking for the perfect single to launch the highly anticipated reissue of ‘Listen Without Prejudice Vol.1/MTV Unplugged’ and ‘Fantasy’ was his first and obvious choice. He contacted the hit-maker Nile Rodgers, the only man on the planet who could give Fantasy more funk than it already had. Both George and Nile spoke the same musical language, were on the same page and the rest is history…
In celebration of the album’s reissue, Sony Music together with Channel 4 and BBC Worldwide have commissioned ‘Freedom’, a stunning new film, narrated by George, featuring Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Liam Gallagher, Nile Rodgers, the Freedom ’90 supermodels (Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Tatjana Patitz and Linda Evangelista), Mary J. Blige, Tony Bennett, Mark Ronson, Tracey Emin, Jean Paul Gaultier, Kate Moss, Ricky Gervais, James Corden and many more.
