In coordination with the Showtime documentary George Michael: Freedom, the singer’s Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 will be reissued as a multi-disc set featuring Michael’s MTV Unplugged concert as well as B-sides and other rarities.

Originally scheduled to arrive in November 2016, the then-25th anniversary reissue was postponed several times in the aftermath of Michael’s death. However, the reissue – available both as a 2CD and deluxe 3CD/DVD set – officially arrives on October 20th, a day before George Michael: Freedom premieres on Showtime.

The reissue includes the remastered Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 alongside Michael’s MTV Unplugged concert, which the singer recorded at London’s Three Mills Island Studios in October 1996. The reissue marks the first time the Unplugged performance will be made available as an album.

The deluxe set also includes Michael’s “Fantasy” with Nile Rodgers along with B-sides, remixes and single edits from the era. Additionally, Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 will receive a vinyl reissue.

George Michael: Freedom, narrated by Michael himself, also features interviews with artists like Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Mark Ronson, Mary J. Blige and Oasis’ Liam Gallagher as well as all five supermodels seen in the “Freedom ’90” video: Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista and Tatjana Patitz.
