Boy George - who is currently serving a 15-month jail sentence for falsely imprisoning a male escort - is releasing a single in March
Boy George is releasing a song in March.
The singer - who was jailed for 15 months last week after being found guilty of falsely imprisoning a male escort - collaborated with French artist Regine Zylberberg, 78, before his case came to court.
Their resulting duet 'J'ai toujours porte Bonheur aux hommes' - which translates as 'I've always brought luck to men' - is due to hit shops in two month's time.
George, 47 - real name George O'Dowd - was imprisoned after he took part in a drug-fuelled naked photo shoot which culminated in him detaining Norwegian model Audun Carlsen at the star's East London apartment.
The 29-year-old Scandinavian alleged that George and an unnamed male attacked him, handcuffed him and attached him to a hook drilled into the wall next to his bed.
Carlsen also claimed George, 47, beat him with a chain as he tried to escape from the property in just his underwear, trainers and the handcuffs.
Judge David Radford, when handing down the punishment, told George he was guilty of "gratuitous violence" and branded his actions "callous" and "degrading".
