Song is from is singer's forthcoming new album entitled Symphonica which goes on sale next month

George Michael is finally back with some new music.

Well, not exactly new but new for him anyway.

The singer has just released his version of the song Let Her Down Easy which was a big hit previously for Terence Trent D’Arby in 1993.

It is the lead single from Michael's forthcoming album Symphonica which will be out on 17 May. It is a collection of both standards and re-worked versions of his own tunes.

The album was recorded while Michael was on a concert tour of the same name in 2011 and 2012. It is produced by Michael and the late legendary music producer Phil Ramone.

Guillermo Diaz is one of the busiest openly gay actor in Hollywood but he goes about his work without any of the attention that accompanies every career move of Neil Patrick Harris or Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

But that seems to suit this 37-year-old just fine as he takes on roles both gay and straight in television and film. He currently plays the role of Huck, an ex-CIA agent turned computer hacker, on the ABC series Scandal which will return for a second season this fall.

That man is country music star Blake Shelton who along with Levine, Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green are the vocal coaches on NBC's The Voice. Levine and Shelton have had an obvious on-air 'bromance' going on since the show debuted last year.
