George Michael's latest release comes three years after the late singer's death.

George Michael's new single 'This is How (We Want You to Get High)'.

The previously unheard and unreleased song was recorded during his final studio sessions and is the finale to Last Christmas, the new romantic comedy inspired by the music of George Michael and Wham!

Several unreleased George Michael tracks will appear on the soundtrack for the upcoming film Last Christmas, starring Emilia Clarke, Emma Thompson, and Henry Golding.

This Is How (We Want You To Get High) began in early 2012, and its finishing touches were added in late 2015.


It follows the story of Kate (portrayed by "Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke) as she accepts to work as Santa's elf for a department store during the holiday season.

The actress and writer reportedly fell in love with "This Is How (We Want You To Get High)" and its lyrics, which resonate with the central theme of the movie.

In a statement, George's family said they hoped fans everywhere would "rejoice in hearing this great new song written as ever with Yog's huge passion and pride".

'I was, and am, a huge Wham! and George Michael fan and even though he is no longer with us, his music remains a joy to us all, ' said Zoe Ball.

The Oscar victor said recently: '[George] was just the loveliest guy you could imagine.


Thompson first met with Michael in 2013 to talk about her ideas for the screenplay.

Sadly, the "Fastlove" hitmaker tragically passed away on Christmas Day 2016 at the age of 53.

Thompson heard the new tune and three other unreleased Michael songs a year ago when working on the soundtrack.

Last Christmas opens in theaters on November 8.
