The new CD also marks Michael's return to Sony music. Michael left the company over a contract dispute in 1995.

George Michael has stated that "Patience" will be his last commercially produced album. Michael has stated that he has made enough money over the years and doesn't need any more of the public's money. Michael further indicated that any music created by him in the future will be available for free via the internet. Any money involved from the downloading of music will go to one of Michael's favourite charities. However, according to Sony officials, Michael's next release is in the planning stages and will be a duets album.

In other George Michael news the singer has been discussing with producers and former band mate Andrew Ridgley the possibility of creating a musical from the music of Wham. Michael says that he has mixed feelings on the idea. While it may be a good idea, Michael is concerned over how the show would turn out and whether it would be of good quality. No word yet on Michael's decision of whether or not there will be a Wham Musical.

George Michael was recently given an award for the number one artist for having his music played on the radio in the UK. Michael beat out Sir Paul McCartney and the Beatles for the honour. Michael says that he doesn't understand how since he only recorded six albums in 22 years.
