Boy George Is Back


Boy George is set to release his first solo album in nearly ten years.

Androgynous 80s icon Boy George rose to fame as the front man of pop/new-wave group Culture Club, topping the charts with singles Karma Chameleon and Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?. Together Culture Club created five studio albums, seven compilations and 20 singles, selling millions of copies worldwide. 


In the late ’80s Boy George decided to embark on a solo career, earning himself a Grammy nomination in 1999 for ‘When Will You Learn’. He also started to branch out into other areas, including writing the score for a biographical musical Taboo for which he received a Tony nomination for Best Musical Score. 

However as time passed Boy George became more well known for his drug problems and criminal record than his constantly changing role as a DJ, actor, photographer and fashion designer. 

Now after nearly ten years, Boy George is going to release a new solo album, Ordinary Alien. The album is collaboration between Boy George and producer Kinky Roland who have worked closely over the past fifteen years, evident in the album’s subtitle ‘The Kinky Rowland Files’. 

Originating from Berlin, Kinky Roland has produced tracks for artists such as Bananarama, Roland Sebastian Faber, Marc Almond and John Taylor
Boy George’s comeback is set to continue with Culture Club’s World Tour next year to celebrate their 30th Anniversary. 
Ordinary Alien will be available in Australia this month via Decode Records.
