Singer, Songwriter, Producer, Philanthropist and Creative Icon, George Michael is considered one of the most influential recording artists of all time. He rose to fame in the 1980s as a member of the duo WHAM!, selling over 30 million records. He later embarked on a solo career achieving immense success selling over 125 million records worldwide and is one of the best-selling musicians of all time, topping the Billboard Hot 100 chart eight times in the US and hitting the No.1 spot on the UK singles charts seven times as a solo artist and redefining pop music in the process. 

Wham! / The Singles: Echoes From The Edge of Heaven

The Singles: Echoes From The Edge Of Heaven is a new Wham! release which marks the pop band’s 40th anniversary. It collects all ten singles that Wham! released in the UK (‘Careless Whisper’, as a George Michael single is not included) and will be available across five physical formats, some of which offer B-sides and remixes. The audio has all been newly remastered from the original tapes.

The most lavish and expensive edition is the seven-inch single box set. This limited edition features replicas of all ten singles in a special carry case and includes a hardcover book with notes on each single and a cassette of bonus mixes. It also includes a metal key ring, postcards and a numbered certificate of authenticity. The box actually has 12 vinyl singles in it since The Edge Of Heaven is comprised of two seven-inch singles (as per the original) and there’s a bonus 45: Interviews: Fan club gift from Wham!

This new release coincides with a new documentary, called WHAM! which is a feature length documentary directed by Chris Smith and producers John Battsek and Simon Halfon. The filmmakers have been given “unprecedented access to both George and Andrew’s personal archive” including remarkable and never-before-seen footage, alongside rare, candid and previously unheard interviews.

The documentary airs on Netflix from 5 July 2023 while Wham! The Singles: Echoes From The Edge Of Heaven will be released on 7 July 2023.
