New George Michael Single

Arjan, who gets the ModFab Seal of Approval as best music blogger in the galaxy, links us up with a stream of George Michael's new single, "An Easier Affair." It's an odd-but-enjoyable slice of retro-dance beats; dedicated to his female fans, it discusses his coming-out process and makes the argument that self-knowledge is inherently empowering. (One could argue that his recent scandals exhibit way too much weed self-knowledge, but we'll keep our tsk-tsks to ourself.) Theoretically released to coincide with his 25Live European tour (his first since 1991, and no U.S. dates yet, sadly), "Affair" fits easily with his other late-career efforts...the track would not have been out of place as a B-side to the 2004 single "Amazing." While I miss the George Michael of "Freedom", "Everything She Wants", "Outside" and "Fastlove", I'll happily take what I can get.
