New York, NY (Top40 Charts) On Wednesday 6 November, the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2 will broadcast the world exclusive first play of a new song from George Michael. The track, entitled This Is How, is from the soundtrack of the forthcoming film Last Christmas, a festive romantic comedy inspired by and featuring the music of George Michael and Wham!.

Zoe Ball says: "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. I'm honoured to be premiering this previously unheard song from George on my breakfast show."

Jeff Smith, Head of Music, Radio 2 and 6 Music, says: "Ever since they burst into the pop charts in 1982 with Young Guns, the music of both Wham! and George Michael has been loved by Radio 2 listeners, so I'm thrilled that they will be the first to hear this very special record."

The film began when British film producer David Livingstone spoke of his love of Wham!'s iconic hit, Last Christmas to the Oscar-winning actor, producer and screenwriter, Emma Thompson.

That conversation sowed the germ of a winning idea - to make a film inspired by Last Christmas, so in spring 2013, Emma Thompson visited George Michael at his London home, who gave her his blessing.

Last Christmas is co-scripted by Emma Thompson and stars Emilia Clarke (Game Of Thrones), Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians), Michelle Yeoh and Thompson. The film will arrive in UK cinemas on 15 November. The soundtrack album features three Wham! songs including Last Christmas and Everything She Wants as well as 12 of George Michael's best loved solo tracks. All songs were written, arranged and produced by George Michael, except This Is How which was co-written and co-produced by George Michael and James Jackman.
