One of music’s most iconic artists, Boy George, has released a new song with Israeli rapper Asaf Goren – listen here. ‘Rainbow in the Dark’ touches on themes of unity, LGBT+ rights and the freedom to be oneself. The pandemic’s lockdown has allowed the singer/songwriter the space to explore creatively; this release with Asaf Goren is the first of many exciting collaborations he’s been working on during this time.
Boy George is one of the world’s most influential, universally loved artists, best known as the lead singer of decade-defining, Grammy award-winning group, Culture Club.

A piece of his visual artwork, entitled ‘When Things Get Dark Look For The Light Switch’, was sold as part of the #ArtForHeroes campaign, where donations exceeded £1millon for the UK’s NHS heroes during the coronavirus pandemic.
