Out Australian singer Brendan Maclean has been called “a king of pop in the making,” and now his newest song is his take on a George Michael classic.
Maclean is joining other singers like Sam Sparro for a George Michael tribute concert at the Sydney Opera House in July with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. The concert was originally intended as an anniversary celebrating 30 years since Michael released Faith, but will now be a tribute to the singer’s life and career.
Maclean made headlines earlier this year when he released a NSFW video for his single, “House of Air,” which was inspired by Hal Fischer’s 1977 essay “Gay Semiotics,” and features a visual examples of different gay terms and meanings.
In his new “Careless Whisper” video Maclean he is armed with nothing but a ukulele and his voice—but this is an emotional cover that should get any George Michael fan choked up. Check it out below.
