Boy George and 80s pop icons Culture Club have released their new track ‘God & Love’.
‘God & Love’ was produced by Future Cut and is the opening track on the band’s first album in 20 years ‘LIFE’, which is available from today.
Of the track, Boy George says, “I think of both love and spirituality as things that must be done.
“It’s no good saying you love someone if you never express it with actions and the same applies to God/spirituality. Don’t be one of those people who go around thanking the universe and spouting spiritual gobbledygook when you don’t have a spiritual bone in your body.
“The song is a call to action. Show me your love and actually do something spiritual and inspiring!”

The group are fronted by singer/songwriter Boy George, universally loved as one of music’s most iconic artists. Roy Hay, Mikey Craig and Jon Moss make up the remaining original line up.
