While its hardly ‘Kiss Unmasked’ Boy George is seen without make-up and hat in the new Culture Club video ‘Life’.
The song is an emotional look back at George’s life. George says, “As the lyricist of ‘Life’ I wanted to express something truthful, honest and bare while carrying an uplifting message of hope. It’s my story but it’s a story so many people will resonate with. A story of recovery, transformation and the start of a brand new journey which has already brought Culture Club well deserved accolades. It’s a song about second chances and new beginnings, enlightenment, spiritual growth and personal redemption.”
The video was shot by Rankin, who has also made videos for Nelly Furtado (Say It Right), Rita Ora (Facemelt) and Miley Cyrus (Adore You).
“John Lennon said ‘LIFE’ is what happens while you are busy doing other things, but sometimes you have to stop and look with sadness and pride at what you have done and created in your own life and value the rich complexity of it,” George said.
‘Life’ is the title track from the sixth Culture Club album. It was released in October 2018.
