A new clip has been released from the upcoming George Michael film Freedom Uncut.

In the newly released exclusive clip from the upcoming documentary, fans can see Elton John, Mark Ronson, John Paul Gaultier, Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell amongst others discuss the genius behind George Michael's concept for the iconic 'Freedom! ’90' music video.

In the clip, Elton John sums up the video saying: “It changed the whole face of how videos were done. The video said everything. It was genius and it was a revolutionary thing.”

Naomi Campbell added: “George pitched it to me in L.A. and his exact words were ‘You’re the leader of the gang and unless you say yes, the rest of the girls won’t.’”

The 'Freedom! '90' music video was directed by David Fincher, and a new 4K remastered version of the full video will play out before the main film in cinemas worldwide on June 22.
