Boy George drops new album with Kim Wilde duet

As announced two months ago, Boy George has recorded a duet with Kim Wilde. The song is called ‘Name and Number’ and is included on Boy George’s new album ‘Cool Karaoke Vol. 1’. In an unexpected move, he has premiered the album today on his official Instagram and YouTube channels. (You can listen to the album below in the enclosed YouTube video. The song starts at 7:51.)

The album looks likely to be released via other media as well, but in an Instagram video posted by Boy George yesterday he explains that “most of the music that I’ve loved has been played to me by other people. You be the DJ, spread the love, tell people about this record. Enjoy it.”

Check out the song with Kim and then check out the entire album. It’s entirely possible that you will enjoy the whole 50+ minutes!
