Boy George Announces New Album 'This Is What I Do' Out October 28th 2013

Boy George, universally recognised as one of our generation's most iconic artists, is back with a thrilling new studio album of original material, his first in 18 years! 'This Is What I Do' is to be released on his own 'Very Me' Record Label via Kobalt Label Services on 28th October and will be supported by live dates in the UK.
 
'This Is What I Do' features a string of guest musicians including DJ Yoda, Kitty Durham (Kitty Daisy & Lewis), Ally McErlaine (Texas / Red Sky July), MC Spee (Dreadzone) and Nizar Al Issa, many of whom will perform as George's band on his live dates.
 
'This Is What I Do' was written by George and longtime writing partnersJohn Themis, Kevan Frost and Richie Stevens (Soul II Soul, Tina Turner, Simply Red, Culture Club). Richie Stevens also produced the record at London's Cowshed Studios. The album also features writing collaborations with legendary producer Youth, and a version of Yoko Ono's Death Of Samantha. It was mixed by Dave Bascombe (Tears For Fears, Depeche Mode, Pendulum, Doves).

 
Boy George needs little introduction. With a career spanning over 30 years he first shot to international stardom in the 1980's as the front man of one of the UK's biggest exports - the Brit & Grammy Award winning Culture Club - and has had continued success as a solo artist.  He has sold over 150 million records with top 10 hits in every country.   Boy George is also a hugely respected house DJ, playing for twenty years, and continues to DJ successfully in clubs all over the world.  However it is his new album, 'This Is What I Do', that reinforces his first true love, writing & singing.
