New George Michael Track Survives on The Pirate Bay

Back in 2004, George Michael announced that he was turning his back on the music industry, vowing that he would never make another album for sale in record shops. Instead, in future he would give his music away for free online. On Christmas Day he gave away a brand new track, but how many people noticed?

George Michael is possibly one of the greatest stars the music business has ever seen, so when he announced in 2004 that he intended to turn his back on the music industry, it came as quite a shock. The 100 million album-selling artist would no longer sell future albums in shops, but instead release his music on the Internet for free. In return he hoped that fans would donate money to charity.

A few weeks ago there were a handful of news articles reporting that George would release a new track in December but there has hardly been a NIN or Radiohead media surge, although maybe that’s understandable since it’s just one track


George has a ton more class than Prince...

Yeah, he has so much more class that he gets busted TWICE with another gay man in the bathroom.

All in all he knows how to fuck someone over and they should watch their six.

I guess we'll have to take your word for it since you can't really know that unless your talking from personal experience.

Theres nothing wrong with homosexuality (in my opinion), but getting caught having sex in a bathroom is trashy regardless if it was with a man or woman. Thats just gross. Then again, I can't think of many musicians who I would actually consider to have much class.


But as for the actual article: Its good to see more and more musicians dabbling in the free music business model.
