This Is How (We Want You To Get High) and Last Christmas OST

November 6, 2019


This Is How (We Want You to Get High), co-written and co-produced by George and collaborator James Jackman was released. Work on This is How (We Want You to Get High) began in early 2012. The track was subsequently developed and recorded in sessions at Air Studios in London, before the finishing touches were added in late 2015 during George’s final recording sessions.

George was the whole package,” said James. “He was a great singer, writer, arranger, producer, he knew how his music should come out and he had the looks. His records will be remembered and covered in 50 years’ time. How many other performers tick all those boxes? I was blessed to be able to work with him.

The song was a fitting finale to Last Christmas, Universal Pictures’ romantic comedy. The film was inspired by the eponymous Wham! hit and had a soundtrack featuring tracks from Wham! and George Michael’s solo career. Director Paul Feig described the movie as ‘a love letter to George’.
