“Fantasy” premiered on BBC Radio 2 this morning and is a re-working of his original record that was recorded in his 1987 album, Faith.

The former Highgate resident had wanted “Fantasy” to be it’s own single and was intended to feature on his second solo album “Listen Without Prejudice Vol.1”.

The track finally appeared on the UK version of the single “Waiting For That Day” in 1990.

The late Mr Michael wanted to launch “Fantasy” again in the highly anticipated reissue of “Listen Without Prejudice Vol.1/MTV Unplugged” and worked alongside producer Nile Rodgers.

Mr Rodgers said he hoped to make the “Wham!” star proud.

After making it’s debut on the UK air waves this morning, fans were left overwhelmed by the remix.

Mr Michael died on Christmas Day last year at his home in Goring-on-Thames in Oxfordshire.
