George Michael - You and I

George Michael's gone slightly under the radar with this week's release of You and I, a cover of the Stevie Wonder song that he's recorded in honour of the upcoming marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Now, if you're still smarting from the agony of listening to his cover of True Faith for Comic Relief, don't worry. This time around it's more like a Disney theme than a glitchy, autotuned electronica overhaul of a much-loved tune. If you can bear to stare at Wills and Kate for nearly five minutes, have a listen below.

Even if that's too much to take, you can download the track for free at George Michael's website. All he asks in return is that you donate to The Prince William & Miss Catherine Middleton Charitable Gift Fund, the couple's alternative to a traditional wedding list that asks wellwishers to help out a worthy cause rather than buying them a toaster.

So, love it or hate it, this latest effort from George is again helping out needy charities - and I'm not going to criticise him for that. Make up your own minds on this one!
