George Michael's death hasn't quieted his iconic voice.

A new song by the beloved British singer is set to debut Thursday on BBC Radio 2, eight months after he died at 53 last Christmas Day.

There's been no word on when the track was recorded, but producer Nile Rodgers has hinted on Twitter that the posthumous pop song will be a remix of "Fantasy," a 1987-era bonus track off "Faith."

Rodgers on Wednesday retweeted a BBC reporter guessing that the track would be "Fantasy," and chimed in on a fan who expressed excitement at hearing the tune Thursday.

"This process was extremely emotional for me," he wrote. "We were such massive fans of each other's work. #Christmas2016 was very sad."

Michael's sisters Melanie and Yioda took to the singer's official website to share an update on their goal of keeping his musical legacy strong.

"Our aim is to carry on, as we know Yog would have wanted, to share and enjoy his precious legacy and to continue to bring you joy through his extraordinarily beautiful music," they wrote.

A source told Us Weekly that the remix of the track was commissioned by Michael before his death, but he died before production was completed, and never got to hear the final effort.
