George Michael Celebrates Re-release of his Iconic 'Faith' with Three Commemorative Packages

I can't believe it's been nearly 24 years since the release of George Michael's debut solo album, Faith. Wow! Hearing that Epic/Legacy Records had released a new Deluxe Edition, Special Edition and a 2CD Remastered Edition - well - it's all just a bit overwhelming. Released on February 1st, the Deluxe Edition (see BELOW) features a whole bunch of delicious goodies including an 180-gram vinyl replica LP as well as a 'memorabilia envelope" stuffed full of art prints, a poster, tickets and a tour pass. You can see a full list of what's included as well as a tracklisting below the cut.

When you're thinking about ICONIC albums of the past 25-30 years, Faith really should be up there. Whether you agree or disagree with that statement the facts speak for themselves: Faith spent 87 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart including 12 weeks in the #1 spot, Faith has the rare privilege of earning an RIAA diamond certification (over 10 million units sold). Winning a Grammy for 'Album of the Year,' Faith spawned six hit singles including "I Want Your Sex," Father Figure," and, of course, the title track "Faith." Together, these six singles helped make George Michael an unstoppable force on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts for a cumulative 85+ weeks between 1987 - 1989. It was THIS album alone that earned George Michael his place in musical history. If anyone deserves a landmark spotlight as big as this, it's George Michael.

In addition to all of the success Michael had with his album here in the North America (10x-platinum = diamond), internationally the album was a huge success as well.  4x-platinum in the UK - 5x-platinum in Australia and similar success in Germany, Austria, The Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and basically everywhere else.  It's also important to remember that in total, Michael has five studio albums out and over 30 + original singles, together generating more than 200 million in record sales.  Now that's what I call a career!  Over the years Michael has had his share of tabloid drama but despite the ups and downs that came with his celebrity, this special release is all about the music and that's really all that should matter in the end. Before I break down just what you get in the three packages, check out this 'Sizzle Reel' showcasing this truly iconic pop record.  It's in stores now so pick up your copy today!  Tracklistings and additional information available on the official site.

Hot Remix Alert: Katy Perry - E.T. (Futuristic Lover) (Suneil S Club Mix)

Bring on the remixes for Katy Perry's fourth single off of her sophomore album, Teenage Dream. While initially, "E.T." was not my first choice, it's grown on me considerably since the first time I heard it. Written by Perry, Lukasz Gottwald, Max Martin, Joshua Coleman and produced by Dr. Luke, Ammo and Martin the song is a more appropriate choice for a single than let's say, "Peacock," for example. The song was first released digitally before the album came out as a hype-generating tactic by the label, whereupon the single debuted at #42 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The single will be officially released on February 27th in the UK and on March 1st in America.

To date, all of Perry's Teenage Dream singles have been remixed for the clubs, so a remix package for "E.T." seems imminent. Confirmed official remixers thus far are Manhattan Clique, Dave Audé and DJ Tiësto. There's also an official radio remix featuring UK rapper Tinie Tempah which is generating some interest at the moment.

On the unofficial remix front we have a fantastic mix by Suneil S, an Edinburgh-based producer/remixer. Suneil S. released his first single back in 2007 and has been making strides and improving upon his work ever since. In addition to creating fresh, new sounds Suneil has received support from big names in the the electronic music scene including Rasmus Faber, Axwell, StoneBridge, Jerome Isma-Ae, Timo Maas, Tomcraft, Jesse Voorn and many more. This year, Suneil S takes his knowledge and passion for electronic music to the airwaves with a weekly resident show alongside DJ Kay-Dee for Serbia's AS FM, showcasing the finest in House music. Check his fantastic remix of the new Katy Perry single, "E.T." below and if you like what you hear, DOWNLOAD it for yourself.
