Boy George has revealed that Culture Club will reform next year to make a new album and go on a world tour.

The band last reunited for a 20th anniversary concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London in 2002, but the singer has confirmed that the 2012 reformation will give rise to the band's first new material since 1999 album 'Don’t Mind If I Do'.

"We'll be doing a proper huge worldwide tour and a new album," he told BBC Breakfast.

Boy George's new solo album, 'Ordinary Alien', is out today (January 31). As well as speaking about the 2012 reformation this morning, he explained that the record was partly based on his experiences in prison. In May 2009 he was released from jail after serving a sentence for falsely imprisoning someone in his flat.

"I kind of use my writing like a diary, so I write about things that are very personal to me, things that I've experienced, things that have affected me and that I feel strongly about," he said when discussing the lyrical content of the album. "I've surprised myself really with my resilience. Yes [prison] did happen, but it feels so long ago now."
