Here’s a tune that slipped the net and the man himself forgot to tell us about!

George is the featured vocalist on this track by Tension, aka British DJ and producer Paul Morrell.

A cover of Outrage’s 90s club/house hit, it was originally recorded by Morrell as an up-to-date bootleg. The record lable (New State) loved it but Morrell couldn’t get clearance to release the vocal sample, so needed it re-sung. George stepped in and saved the day.

George is proud to be the face of YMCA Australia’s latest promotion.

He has re-recorded the Village People classic YMCA in order to shine a light on issues important to Australian youth like marriage equality, mental health and youth unemployment.

The stripped back, acoustic version surprisingly lends itself to George’s style.

George said “The thing about covering songs, you have to get inside the song and see if it works and when I started to listen to the lyrics they were weirdly revealing….. I started to think, this is going to really work in my shows.”

Watch the excellent video for the song here:
