Boy George releasing new album This Is What I Do after 18-year break

Boy George is back, guys! The solo artist and lead singer of Culture Club — the first group since The Beatles to have three singles from a debut album chart in the Top 10 in the US — never really left, of course. In fact, he’s been a pretty successful house music DJ for the past 20 or so years… if you don’t know, well, now you know. But this year, Boy George is set to release his first studio album in 18 years, This Is What I Do, which is already out in the UK but drops March 25 on Boy George’s Very Me imprint here in these old United States. You can check out the ballady lead single, “King of Everything” below, which features dogs! boxers! a person literally dressed as a king! and some kinda questionable fashion choices from the Boy himself.

Written by Boy George and his longstanding writing partners John Themis, Kevan Frost, and Richie Stevens (Soul II Soul, Tina Turner, Culture Club), the album was mixed by Dave Bascombe (Tears for Fears, Depeche Mode, Doves). Boy George also collaborated with producer Youth (Siouxsie and the Banshees, Primal Scream, The Orb, U2, and Depeche Mode) and rounded up some friends to appear on the album, including DJ Yoda and Kitty of Kitty, Daisy, & Lewis, just to name a few. Boy George will be bringing several of said pals along on the road when he and his nine-piece band plan to tour North America later this year — Euro dates will have to suffice for now.
