Cul­ture Club end 20-year new song wait

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.
