The Irish singer was found dead at his holiday home in Majorca in October of last year; he was just 33. Tributes followed the tragic death of Gately but Daily Mail columnist Jan Moir caused outrage, and thousands of complaints to the PCC, in an article which claimed there was “nothing natural” about his death.

The track will feature vocals from the singer as it was recorded in the summer of 2009.
