Older is the third studio album from George Michael, released in Europe on 13 May 1996 through Virgin Records and one day later in the United States through the then-new DreamWorks Records. Older was the very first album released by DreamWorks Records. It was his first album since 1990's Listen Without Prejudice, Vol. 1 – the five-and-a-half-year gap was due to the controversial legal battle that Michael experienced with his record company. Michael dedicated three years straight in the recording of Older, and the album found him exploring new musical territories in a more serious fashion compared to his previous work. At the time of release, the album was a huge commercial hit, particularly in Europe, but was received in America with a lukewarm critical approval and mediocre sales figures. In the UK, the album was particularly notable for producing six Top Three hit singles in a two-year span, creating a record still unsurpassed. The high sales of the album presaged a re-issue of the album under the name of Older & Upper eighteen months after its original release.

I started meeting all these older people who were past all those stages and just rebelling and really being true to themselves and unafraid to wear whatever they wanted and express themselves in whatever way they wanted, so for me, it's sort of given me that permission to really dress however I feel on any given day. ... It's about playing, it's about joy, it's about having fun.
We are in a unique moment where the older generation is counting on young people to step up, by becoming a poll worker, you're aiding in the effort to prevent the closure of polling locations, so that you're giving more people the ability to vote so we can have a government that's more representative of the people of the country.
Trump is turning off more voters than he’s bringing in, his base is strong, but it isn’t growing. During his first year in office, Trump has consistently played to a base of passionate supporters, many of them older white men who live in rural areas declining in population, and has shown little inclination to reach out to the majority of voters who disapprove of him. Whit Ayres, a Republican pollster based in Virginia, said the party was on a risky track. Republicans have traded fast-growing upscale suburban counties for slow-growing or declining rural areas. That is not a formula for long-term success.
