Boy George and Culture Club unveiled the music video for their first single in 20 years today, and it’s all about bringing people together in a divisive time.
The band first released the song, Let Somebody Love You, at the end of July. While they’ve performed the song before at live events, this was their first opportunity to record it in a studio.
In the video, Boy George approaches a group of people beneath an overpass. The thing is, all the people are divided. There are multiple speakers and crowds have broken to listen to one speaker or another, but there’s no mingling or co-existing.
Until Boy George starts singing to them.
‘Love is revolution/War and famine too,’ he sings. ‘Feed the hunger in your heart/Let somebody love you.’
Recently, Boy George came under fire after he criticized Lady Gaga’s looks.
He also finally spilled some tea on the historic feud with Madonna.
Culture Club initially ended their tenure as a band in 1986. Since then, they’ve launched numerous reunions together.
In 2014, they officially got back together and toured in 2015 and 2016.
The band’s sixth album, Life, is set for release on 26 October. It follows the shelved album Tribes.
