Get ready, George Michael fans – a previously unreleased song is here.

The upbeat track, titled “This Is How (We Want You To Get High),” was released Wednesday, tied to the upcoming film “Last Christmas” (in theaters Friday).

The movie, which stars Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding and Emma Thompson, features multiple tracks from Wham!, comprised of Michael and Andrew Ridgeley, as well as several of Michael’s solo tracks.

“This Is How” was recorded during Michael’s final studio sessions, according to a press release, and is the first of his original material to be shared since 2012.

According to the release, Thompson, who also co-wrote the film’s screenplay, “instantly fell in love” with the unreleased track in 2018.

Listen to the previously unheard song below.

The British singer and musician died over the 2016 Christmas holiday in Goring, England, his publicist Connie Filippello confirmed to USA TODAY at the time. He was 53.

“It is with great sadness that we can confirm our beloved son, brother and friend George passed away peacefully at home over the Christmas period,” the statement read. “The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult and emotional time. There will be no further comment at this stage.”

Two months later, British coroner Darren Salter said the singer died of natural causes due to heart disease and a fatty liver.
