George Michael has announced that the proceeds of his new single will go directly towards the Comic Relief charity in the UK.
The song True Faith is a remake of New Order’s 1987 hit and has been arranged and produced by Michael himself.
The original writers of the song have also agreed to donate their proceeds from the sale of the single to Comic Relief.
The single, plus an instrumental version of the track as a b-side, will be available digitally on March 13 and physically on March 14.
After the True Faith official music video premieres on March 19, the single and video will be available for purchase as a bundle exclusively through iTunes.
Comic Relief raises money to help poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged people in the UK and Africa.
“Over the years, George has been the most tremendous supporter of Comic Relief,” said Richard Curtis, Vice Chair of Comic Relief.
Michael previously appeared in a Little Britain sketch produced for Comic Relief and donated all the cash made from the release of As, his 1999 duet with Mary J Blige, to the charity.
