Boy George has signed a label deal with BMG and plans to release a solo covers album later this year.
The new deal means his recording contract and publishing are both with BMG. The company acquired his songwriting catalogue as part of the purchase of the Virgin Music publishing catalogues in 2012.
Korda Marshall, EVP – new recordings, said: “We’re incredibly delighted and proud to be signing such an amazing international artist like George. We’re all looking forward to working with him and his manager Paul Kemsley. His global legacy allows BMG to do what BMG does best – work together in delivering extraordinary music. A very big welcome to BMG.”
