Boy George is back with a 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 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.
Says George: "I wanted to make a baggy album, not overproduced and I think I have achieved it. I was listening to things like 'Beast Of Burden' by The Stones' and I had my head most definitely in the 70s. Richie's approach was very organic and he's the best drummer in the country so the feel of the record was so locked in from the start. I worked with a bunch of musicians who I have toured with and written with for the past fifteen years and dragged in a handful of others to guest on certain tracks like bassist Jennifer Maidman, Ally McErlaine from Texas and Kitty Durham from Kitty Daisy & Lewis who came and played harmonica. I was also writing from a happy place. This time, no ex lovers to get revenge on. For me 'Bigger Than War' sums up the tone."
