George Michael to Cover New Order for Comic Relief

Posted March 4th, 2011 by eric

George Michael is set to release a cover of New Order’s “True Faith” on March 13, 2011 to raise money for Comic Relief. Seems a bit of a left-field choice for Michael, but New Order’s (ex) own Peter Hook has given his slightly backhanded blessing, saying, “It blew me away when I heard it. Not exactly to my taste, but it did blow me away.” New Order’s original single was released back in 1987- the same year that George Michael stormed the American charts with a slew of hits off his Faith album.
