After George's death aged 53 in December last year (16), Nile, 64, explained he had been mixing tracks for the singer, who was planning a comeback. On Monday (10Jul17) the Chic star revealed on Twitter that the British musician's death had not halted work and posted a picture of himself in Los Angeles' Village Studios which he captioned, "#georgemichael vocals are so hot the faders burned our hands." Asked by fans whether he could reveal more about the project Nile tweeted links to an interview he gave to Atlanta, Georgia news channel Fox 5 in which he explained his work with George before the former Wham! singer's death. "I didn't want to send it (the music) to him. I had too much respect to send it to the record company," Nile said in the Fox 5 interview. "So he said 'I will call you on Christmas.' I flew back home Christmas Eve. Christmas, I'm sitting in the movie theater waiting for his call back and an alert comes across the screen, George Michael found dead. Unreal." Asked by another fan when new material would be released he tweeted, "I don't control that. I just make the music. But I love it and he sounds unreal." Another top producer, British artist Naughty Boy, has also revealed he is working on a new track by George. "It's a brand-new track, it is amazing," the 32-year-old, real name Shahid Khan, told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper. "It's a song that he asked me to work with him on and there's a real chance this single will come out." George died from natural causes related to heart and liver conditions on Christmas Day last year (25Dec16).

George Romero, also know as the Zombie Master, has passed away at the age of 77, his family have said.

Romero was well known for his classic 'Night of the Living Dead'. The noted director died after a battle with lung cancer; the family said he died while listening to the soundtrack for 'The Quiet Man'.

Horror director, Eli Roth, said: "Hard to quantify how much he inspired me & what he did for cinema. Condolences to his family." Then adding: "Romero used genre to confront racism 50 years ago. He always had diverse casts, with Duane Jones as the heroic star of NOTLD."

Roth was not the only horror notable to voice his grief at Romero's passing. King of horror, Stephen King wrote: "Sad to hear my favourite collaborator and good old friend, George Romero has died. George, there will never be another like you."

The writer and director , pioneer of zombie horror, died after a brief battle with lung cancer, his producing partner said.

George A. Romero , who launched the zombie film genre with his 1968 “ Night of the Living Dead ,” died on Sunday, Variety has confirmed. He was 77 . The director died in his sleep following a battle with lung cancer, according to a statement from his manager Chris Roe.

Night of the Living Dead, along with being a classic film, reinvented the zombie genre, handing down rules about the undead that would stick for decades.

Romero was born in New York City in 1940, growing up in the Bronx. He later graduated from Pittsburgh's Carnegie Mellon University.

After 'Night of the Living Dead' came 'Dawn of the Dead' and several other zombie films Romero made.

Speaking to the Associated Press nearly a decade ago, Romero spoke of why he loved the genre: "The zombies, they could be anything," he said "They could be an avalanche, they could be a hurricane. It's a disaster out there. The stories are about how people fail to respond in the proper way. They fail to address it. They keep trying to stick where they are, instead of recognizing maybe this is too big for us to try to maintain. That's the part of it that I've always enjoyed."
