LONDON — After a spell of making headlines for mishaps rather than music, George Michael is coming back with a new album.
Michael announced Monday that his sixth solo album, “Symphonica,” is due for release March 17.
Michael recorded the album during a 2011-2012 tour that was interrupted when he contracted life-threatening pneumonia.
The former Wham! singer was hospitalized again last year after falling from a car on a highway near London.
He was imprisoned for eight weeks in 2010 for possessing marijuana and driving under the influence of drugs after he crashed his Range Rover into a photo shop.
