The same could be said for the wave of George Michael nostalgia. Says Lippman: "We’ve had an unprecedented 13 synchs this year leading into the anniversary album. It's just getting started."

I guess it was about anniversary of LWP (25 years) only, not about a new album?

Where did the info on a new album come from?

I think people are reading way too much into this.

How can you read too much into this? George’s manager has confirmed the anniversary re-release of LWP! We’ve discussed the desired content before, but if this doesn’t at lease included LWP2 on a separate disc, It'll be a disappointment. Throw in the ‘cover to cover’ concert on CD/DVD, and you get the potential for a beautiful complete deluxe box set to keep us punters happy.

It's still potentially the same old, same old songs though... how's that exciting?

What is the point of a 26 year anniversary release? I think this referred to plans last year which appear not to have been actioned. Feel free to speculate on the reasons for that but unlikely IMO that we will get an anniversary product this year.

I don't see anything confirmed in the article. And there are more questions thrown up than answers.
  • The 25th anniversary was last year not this year. Why is the 26th anniversary being marked?
  • Why is Lippman getting so excited about the promotion opportunity from a B movie?
  • Or from that matter any opportunity when George's own promotion would put any other in the shade
  • George seems to have had an uncharacteristically light touch on the input/editing to the use of his music in the movie.
Personally I wouldn't welcome a re-issue or C2C release timing wise as it would just buy yet more time to delay putting out an album of fresh material. If the fresh material is LWP V2 and it comes at the same time fantastic, I don't care what it's called although I doubt George would pick up that naming line after so long. But personally I'll believe nothing any more until I see it.

I think the intention was there, some kind of wave (that probably included the spotify all-time favourites to be updated weekly).
But it seems to have been dropped for whatever reason.

Maybe it was planned for last year and didn't happen for whatever reason. Maybe George wanted to be involved and wasn't up to it last year but is now...even if it's minor involvement. I can't see it not happening given Lippmans comments. Personally if we get some cover to cover material I'd be delighted. I don't think any of this is "delaying" a new album. That will come when George is ready, no sooner. It may be a stop gap but it's better than nothing imo.

I would also welcome an reissue of LWP because it is such an amazing album and deserves to be heard by more people. It would be a good opportunity to remaster the album, which is actually needed IMO.

I'm hoping for a new album instead of a re-issue. Notice that Lippman doesn't say a re-issue. He just refers to an anniversary album. Maybe he's talking about a completely new album that will be released on the anniversary of LWP, the same way that White Light was released on the 30th anniversary of Wham! Rap.

Then again, it could also be a typo and nothing will be happening. The Billboard article may have meant "the anniversary of the album," but instead the author got sloppy and left out "of the" and the editor didn't catch it.

Why does the album need re-issuing? You can still buy it.

Why does it need re-mastering? Re-mastered stuff sounds the same to me.

I see a lot of straw-clutching going on here. Time will tell and always happy to eat my words if it means we see some output.

Wasn't the Freedom Picture Disc released to commemorate the 25th anniversary?
