GEORGE MICHAEL FREEDOM UNCUT

GLAAD × GEORGE MICHAEL

GLAAD, the world’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) media advocacy organization, along with Sony Music Entertainment and Trafalgar Releasing, presented a new clip from the upcoming autobiographical feature documentary GEORGE MICHAEL FREEDOM UNCUTAdditionally, GLAAD.org has posted an in-depth interview with the co-director and producer of the film, George Michael’s songwriting partner and long-time collaborator, David Austin. View the clip and the interview HERE.

David Austin said, “We are very proud to Partner with GLAAD – George was proud of his sexuality and campaigned throughout his life for everyone to have the freedom to be who they wanted to be and love who they wanted to love.”

Anthony Allen Ramos, Vice President of Communications & Talent of GLAAD, said, “Pride Month is a perfect opportunity to remember the trailblazing legacy of George Michael within the music industry and beyond. The release of GEORGE MICHAEL FREEDOM UNCUT will help audiences learn so much about the performer’s extraordinary life. It is truly special to see the film’s never before seen footage and personal stories about his touching love story with Anselmo Feleppa, who unfortunately left us far too early.”

A poignant and moving tribute to the legacy of one of Britain’s greatest performers, in his final work George Michael reclaims the narrative of his career, personal life, and controversies. Throughout the film, Michael reveals openly and honestly the two distinct sides of his life: his very public music career and his private personal life that cameras never truly saw. Michael was heavily involved in and dedicated to the making of this documentary before his tragic passing in 2016, making GEORGE MICHAEL FREEDOM UNCUT an incredibly special posthumous release and a poignant and moving tribute to his legacy.

Narrated by the late Grammy® Award winner himself, GEORGE MICHAEL FREEDOM UNCUT delves into the turbulent period after “Faith” leading up to, during, and after the making of Michael’s “Listen Without Prejudice: Vol 1” album in 1990. At this pivotal time, Michael can fight for his artistic freedom and lead the way for others. As the film clip posted at GLAAD beautifully illustrates, it was at this period of his life when Michael meets his first real love, Anselmo Feleppa, and nothing is ever the same for him. The moving film later explores how the legendary singer navigates both the heartbreak of Anselmo’s early tragic passing and the devastating loss of his mother.

The documentary features numerous celebrities, with contributors including Stevie Wonder, Sir Elton John, Ricky Gervais, Nile Rogers, Mark Ronson, Tracey Emin, Liam Gallagher, Mary J. Blige, Jean-Paul Gaultier, James Corden, Tony Bennett, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Tatjana Patitz.

GEORGE MICHAEL FREEDOM UNCUT is produced by Big Geoff Overseas Limited in conjunction with Sony Music Entertainment and distributed theatrically worldwide by Trafalgar Releasing.

In celebration of George Michael’s iconic album Older, Sony Music will release a deluxe, limited-edition box set in July. The set will also be available in digital/CD/2LP formats. 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.

BBC INTRODUCING FAVORITE PATTERN PUSHER ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO A BRIGHTER FUTURE WITH ENERGETIC NEW SINGLE

LISTEN HERE

BBC INTRODUCING PERFORMANCE HERE

“Kingpins of the live music scene in the South West. Come Along is so fun and so polished, Pattern Pusher at their fines” – Sarah Gosling (BBC Introducing South & West)​

“One of the most energetic live shows” – GQ Magazine

“Strong classic songwriting from start to finish” – Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music)

Pattern Pusher is an energetic funk-soul three piece from the South West who create uplifting, inspiring and optimistic music that is hitting all the right notes in a world crying out for positivity.

Prior to the UK’s initial lockdown, they had just won the Glastonbury Pilton competition (judged by Michael Eavis), played in front of 8,000 people, supported Wolf Alice and completed an epic festival season playing the main stages at Bearded Theory and Beautiful Days.

With no choice but to lock themselves away in the studio, the band have emerged in 2021 armed with their impressive debut album, a collaboration of their musical prowess and a nod to the classic artists they so admire. Inspired by the vintage approach of 60s and 70s classic songwriting, Pattern Pusher draw influence from the likes of The Rolling Stones, Jamiroquai and Primal Scream with a bright and new energy.

The band is fronted by Alex Johnstone on the keys, whose soaring soulful vocals are evocative of Donny Hathaway and Ray Charles, while Benny G’s wild energy on the bass and Benny C’s grooving drum rhythms underpin an unconventional line up with a classic sound. Their crusade of happiness has earned them a loyal fan base, accolades from BBC Radio 6, support from BBC Introducing, and a string of festival shows; now lining up on the same bills as their idols.

New single Come Along is the band’s first release in over a year. Both lyrically and sonically the song is looking to a brighter future, after a tough time for society, helping each other out and feeling hopeful for better days ahead. They worked with producer John Waddell in Oxford and the song was mixed by the legendary Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro).

Bursting into life with driving keys and a pulsating bass line, the single is sure to be an anthem for the summer, injecting some much-needed positivity into a music scene that has suffered a great deal over the last year.

The band recently gave ‘Come Along’ its first public performance as part of the online Music Feeds concert headlined by Liam GallagherBlossoms and Sam Smith that raised over £1 million for charity. Recorded in their own studio, the session earned them the accolade of the best performance of the night from many of the concert viewers and they are now in talks with the organizers James about accompanying them on live dates.

Their forthcoming album is already attracting significant industry attention. Pattern Pusher have recently signed a management deal and have already landed their first big sync placement with Guessable on Comedy Central.

“We are so excited to be able to finally share the new music that we have been working on with the world. We have a renewed spring in our step, and we are marching into 2021 with positivity and excitement”.
