Boy George also premieres his brand new video for 'King Of Everything' check it out below.
The song is written by Boy George and longtime writing partners John Themis, Kevan Frost and Richie Stevens and is the first single taken from Boy George's first new studio album in 18 years entitled 'This Is What I Do.'
'This Is What I Do' is to be released on his own 'Very Me' Record Label via Kobalt Label Services on 28th October and will be supported by live dates in the UK.
The video for 'King Of Everything was filmed in various locations in East and South East London and tells the story of a gorgeous boxer and his disappointed wife; whilst the story is not about George, the O'Dowd family does have strong links with the sport.
The boxing ring scenes were filmed at the Benefice of Charlton Saint Thomas' Church, Charlton with other locations at London Bridge and Broadway Market.
Says George: "The video is pretty much a direct narrative of the song. We shot the bulk of it in local gym where I grew up in South London. We used all real people and went for character to give the clip a filmic quality. Our mum was a lady we encountered while location scouting and our wife and dog Paris are the director Mike Nicholls' neighbours. The two star appearances are singer ROY INC and Danie Cox from the pop group The Feathers."
