Pre-order George Michael’s iconic album Older in deluxe box set

Written, arranged and produced by George Michael, Older saw George exploring new music, as he reflected on life, loss and pain with, ultimately, the redemptive power of love triumphing over everything.

Originally released in the UK on May 13, 1996 through Virgin Records, Older, George Michael’s iconic album, reached the pinnacle of chart success, where it remained for three consecutive weeks, spending 35 weeks in the top 10 overall. The album produced six singles, two of which — “Fastlove” and the haunting “Jesus To A Child” — reached No.1, with the other four peaking in the top three.

The album was a huge global commercial success, going 6x platinum in the UK, as well as verified platinum in another 22 countries – an achievement which is unparalleled to this day.

“I think I composed the best, most healing piece of music that I’ve written in my life with this album … Older is my greatest moment” – George Michael

Older was George’s third album as a solo artist and would see him experimenting with new musical styles and expanding his artistic horizons. Hailed by critics as a triumph, it told the story of an extraordinary period in the life of the man who wrote, recorded and produced it, as he journeyed through one of the most turbulent periods of his professional and personal life. George channeled all his painful life experiences into one of the most personal, heart-felt albums he had ever written.

Older will be released on September 16, 2022. Pre-order Older HERE.
