Culture Club end 20-year new song wait
THE original line-up of 1980s pop group Culture Club have released their first new material in almost 20 years with the single Let Somebody Love You.
Written by singer Boy George (above), guitarist Roy Hay, bassist Mikey Craig and drummer Jon Moss, the song comes as the group readies a new 11-track album called LIFE, which will be released on October 26.
The band have sold more than 150 million records worldwide and are best known for hits such as Do You Really Want To Hurt Me? and Karma Chameleon.
They have previously performed Let Somebody Love You live but had never released a recorded version of the track.
The song is in keeping with the band’s classic reggaeinfused sound.
The band reunited in 2014, some 12 years after playing a 20th anniversary show at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
