George Michael has revealed that he wrote a song for his upcoming album, intending it be a duet with late soul singer Amy Winehouse before she passed away.
The singer has revealed that he was so 'in awe of her talent' that he couldn't wait to write and work with her.
George told Magic 105.4: "There is one I wrote, I was hoping to sing with Amy Winehouse," he said of a ballad on the album.
"I was so in awe of her talent, bless her heart I never got to offer it as a duet." The star also added that his upcoming album is "the most direct record that I have made since [1987 solo debut] Faith".
George has been known to broadcast his love for Amy before, paying tribute to her during a live show by covering her hit 'Love Is A Losing Game'.
Meanwhile, George Michael has confirmed that he will perform at the London 2012 Olympic Games closing ceremony along with the likes of Jessie J.
During a recent interview the singer spilled about the show, but confirmed his participation in the celebrations. ''I'll be performing a couple of tracks at the closing ceremony of the Olympics," he told ITV 1's Lorraine.
We can't wait to see what the singer has in store for us!
