London, April 6 (IANS) Singer George Michael has revealed he has written a song about his near death experience.

The song is titled “White Light”, and the 48-year-old describes the time he spent in a hospital in Vienna last year after suffering from pneumonia.

The singer shared the news on Twitter: “I promise you it’s a blinder.”

“I’ve been a busy boy in the studio this week, mixing Symphonica and finally ready to write about what happened to me in Vienna and how grateful I am to be given another chance to live and breathe alongside you all in this wonderful world that we share,” quoted Michael as saying.

“You may recall my reference to those strange individuals who took the time to pray for my death as I lay in my hospital bed back in November. I thank you all from the deepest part of my soul. And I will repay your unending kindness the only way I know how. With music.”

Michael revealed that the upcoming song was for “every person who has stopped me in the streets to ask me how I’m doing”.

The singer was admitted to hospital in the Austrian city Nov 21 last year.

After his illness, he made his first proper public appearance at this year’s BRIT Awards in February.
