Culture Club unveil comeback single

Culture Club have unveiled comeback single More Than Silence - their first release in over 15 years.

Boy George broke the news on Twitter, writing: "Did someone say new Culture Club single???" and posted a link to the track on YouTube.

More Than Silence is available to buy from today (November 4) and is the first new material from the hit 80s pop group since they reformed earlier this year. It will feature on their new album Tribes, which is due for release early next year.

Boy George said: "Artists make complicated lovers because they always need an audience. I always say 'silence is the loudest sound in the universe'. A blue moon in a lonely sky.

"[Guitarist] Roy [Hay] always wanted to rock out a little. I think we finally created a song which gives him the opportunity."

The singer and bandmates Roy, Mikey Craig and Jon Moss are embarking on an 11-date tour in December, featuring Alison Moyet as a special guest.

Culture Club have said their latest reunion is not about making money, but burying the bitter feuds that went on between them in the past.

Drummer Jon, who used to date Boy George, said earlier this year: "Boy George tried to kill me with a plant pot so I set fire to him but we are friends now."
