Boy George says he is finally ready to reunite with Culture Club after 15 years apart, but wanted to put out his own solo record first.
The 'Karma Chameleon' hitmakers are set to reunite to record a new album in January 2014 - after a 15-year absence from music - and the band's frontman says he is excited to get back together with his bandmates, Jon Moss, Roy Hay and Mikey Craig, after years of discussing a comeback.
He said: ''I talked a few years ago about a Culture Club reunion ... they wanted me to do it for years but it wasn't right and obviously for five or ten years I was going through other things.
''Jon was surprised when I told him I wanted the reunion to happen at last. But I wanted to do this album for myself first.''
George - who has previously battled drug and alcohol abuse - has just released his latest solo album, 'This Is What I Do', and he says the ''darker'' times in his life provide the most inspiration for his songs.
He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''It's easier if you write things at darker stages in your life. When you're happy you can think, 'What do I write about?' ''
