Boy George has announced his return with a new studio album, This Is What I Do, set for release later this year.

This is the first record of original material released by Culture Club's former leader in two decades, and was showcased on Monday at his appearance at Yoko Ono's Meltdown Festival in London.

It is produced by former collaborator Richie Stephens, and features several, as-yet-unnamed guest musicians with some intriguingly "expected to appear as George’s band on his live dates".

He'll also be setting out on tour in November, with tickets going on sale this Friday, June 28, at 9am - have a look at the dates below:

NOVEMBER
Sun 3 - RNCM, Manchester
Tue 5 - Glee Club, Birmingham
Wed 6 - City Varieties Music Hall, Leeds
Thu 7 - King Tuts, Glasgow
Sat 9 - O2 Academy 2, Oxford
Sun 10 - Koko, London
Mon 11 - Concorde 2, Brighton

I would have been interested in a full Martyn Ware produced album by George. His guest turns on the new B.E.F. album were the first cuts I've heard by him that I've really liked. I'll have to see what this sounds like.
