Wham!’s Last Christmas to get a limited physical release in 2023

CD single and 7″ single

Wham!’s 1984 single ‘Last Christmas’ will be issued on coloured vinyl seven-inch and as a CD single, later this month.

The festive favourite famously peaked at number two in 1984 but finally got to number one just after Christmas in 2020. Over the years there have been various physical reissues including a white vinyl seven-inch in 2019 and a US-only bi-colour RSD 12-inch in 2014 (which featured an unreleased instrumental version).

As far as I can tell, there has never been a CD single of Last Christmas in the UK. The first CD single was a Japanese snap-pack in 1988 (which features the single version and Pudding Mix) and between 2004-2005 there were various editions released in Europe, including ‘Pock-iT’ 3-inch CD for Germany. These always had the same tracklisting, the single version and the Pudding Mix.

Therefore the UK CD single is a relatively big deal and it offers four tracks: both versions of ‘Last Christmas’ along with the 5.30 Remix Edit and 6.34 full length Remix versions of ‘Everything She Wants’ (the single was a double A-side in the UK).

The new seven-inch, which is pressed on green vinyl, features the standard single version of ‘Last Christmas’ on the A-side with the Remix Edit of ‘Everything She Wants’ on the flipside.

Both physical editions of ‘Last Christmas’ are described by the label as “very limited” and are released on 15 December 2023 via Sony Music.
