Pop icon Boy George is poised to release his first artist album in more than ten years. Following a non-stop, sell-out European tour with ‘Night Of The Proms’ in 2010 where George performed to over 15,000 fans a night, one of the World’s most recognizable figures is officially back on mainstream music’s radar for good.
Ordinary Alien is an accomplished collection of tracks featuring Boy George & Kinky Roland’s faultless mod-pop production. As songwriters and all-round creative entities, Boy George and Kinky Roland have worked closely over the past fifteen years and Ordinary Alien is born out of this relationship – the pair are renowned for their seemingly never-ending surplus of quality material.
If Boy George isn’t writing then he is simply not Boy George – moving into 2011 and in light of this huge body of work, Boy George is determined to be the recognized as the talented musician he is. Ordinary Alien is the rise of George again – releasing fresh music to the World and chipping away at his craft as a writer, a singer, and a successful producer.
Originating from Berlin, Kinky Roland has been producing top selling tracks and remixes with some of the biggest names in Dance Music – Bananarama, S’Express with Mark Moore, Roland Sebastian Faber (aube records), Mini Legend, Starcluster (with Keen K on aube records), Marc Almond, Mark Moore, Jonny Slut, Glen Gregory, Fran, Princess Julia, Gene Serene, John Taylor; and of course Boy George.
Boy George first shot to international stardom in the 1980s as the front man of one of the UK’s biggest exports – Culture Club, who are re-uniting in 2012 for a Word tour to celebrate the group’s 30th Anniversary. He has sold over 50 million albums and has had top 10 hits in every country. Singer, actor, DJ, artist, photographer, fashion designer, he has constantly reinvented himself and remains today one of the world’s most recognisable iconic figures. Having recently recorded a track for Mark Ronson’s album ‘The Business International’, George and Mark are appearing together at London’s The Roundhouse on February 16th 2011!
Boy George will be releasing lead single “Amazing Grace” in two parts, with part 1 out this week! “Amazing Grace“, which was written by Boy George, John Themis & Kinky Roland was produced and mixed by The Sharp Boys.
