The original version of Fantasy featured as a b-side on the USA release of Freedom "90 and Waiting For That Day in the UK".

A posthumous single from the late George Michael is to receive its first radio play tomorrow.

Musician and producer Nile Rodgers has been tweeting about the possible release of the track for the last few weeks.

The track has been produced by Nile Rodgers, who had been working with Michael shortly before he died.

Writing on Twitter, Nile Rodgers shared fans' mixed feelings about the song.

Fantasy sounds vastly different to the version that was released as a b-side in 1990, and later as a bonus track on 2011's deluxe version of the Faith album. "No one's heart was dragged through emotional ambiguity more than mine.Tears, uncertainty, happiness & love".

"Fantasy was originally meant to be on Listen Without Prejudice and was intended to be one of the singles from the album, but somehow it got lost in the ether", the star's former manager David Austin told BBC Radio 2's Chris Evans in a letter before the song received its premiere.

George reportedly never heard the completed version of the track before his passing.

Michael died on Christmas Day at his home in Goring-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, aged 53, with the cause of death later discovered to have been heart disease.

In a statement posted on his website, Michael's sisters reassured fans that Michael's creative team at Sony Records "will continue bringing you all the projects they had been working so hard on for you, exactly as Yog (Michael) would have wanted".
