After nearly twenty years Culture Club is putting forth a new album and Spotify and YouTube subscribers can listen to the first song "Let Somebody Love You." 

The album is called Life and will be released on October 26. 

Culture Club reformed with the original band members back in 2014 and announced a global tour, but due to an illness suffered by frontman George O'Dowd (Boy George) that tour was severely cut back abroad but rescheduled in full for North America. 

The band is nearly done with their reunion tour which began at the end of June and will close in Fresno in October. 

Culture Club was an 80's mainstay at the top of the Billboard charts. Songs that helped define that decade were "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me,” and “Time (Clock of the Heart),” to name a few. 

The gender fluid O'Dowd immediately gained pop culture status because of his colorful style which appealed to defiant teens everywhere but angered conservative parents who were confused by his androgyny. 

Despite the criticism, Culture Club won the 1984 Grammy for Best New Artist and their tune "Time (Clock of the Heart)" is labeled by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as one of the "500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll." 

The band will make its way to San Diego on Sept. 25 at the Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theatre.
