George Michael redoes "Siren"


(August 14, 2012) George Michael has unveiled the B-side for his new single 'White Light'.

The singer has re-worked Tim Buckley's 'Song to the Siren', which featured on the late rocker's album 'Starsailor' in 1970. The song will feature on Michael's 'White Light' EP, which is out on August 5. The collection also includes two 'White Light' remixes by Voodoo Sonics and Kinky Roland.

'Song to the Siren' has been covered numerous times by a number of artists and became popular after Buckley's untimely death in 1975 at the age of 28. Michael had previously released a live version.

Michael confessed that he was "nervous" ahead of his performance at the Olympics closing ceremony, when he performed 'White Light' as well as his 1990 hit 'Freedom'.
