LISTEN: George Michael’s Dramatic New Ballad “Let Her Down Easy”

You can’t keep George Michael down. During the past few years the out entertainer has weathered a terrifying traffic accident and a near-fatal bout with pneumonia, but he’s lived not only to tell the tale, but offer more beautiful music. For the first single from his upcoming album Symphonica (his first album of new material in a decade, due March 17), the singer wraps his golden voice around a dramatic cover of a number previously recorded by Terrence Trent D’Arby.

Watch a teaser for the song’s video below.
