Producer Mark Ronson has revealed that Boy George will be joining him on stage at this year’s Glastonbury festival to perform their track Somebody to Love Me.
“I’ve put together this band – I think it’s the best band I’ve ever put together – so I’m really excited”, Ronson told Radio 2 DJ Jo Whiley in an interview for Radio Times magazine. “And we’ve got Boy George, so it’s the first time we’ve been able to do Somebody to Love Me….”
“I don’t know if I’m supposed to say any of this,” he added, before continuing: “but yeah, why not? I guess I put so much into this album, it’s really important to me to try not to short-change any part of it.
“I don’t want anything sort of half-baked, because I’ve done that in the past and been really disappointed with myself.”
Ronson also revealed he’s been savvy about his slot, avoiding a clash with Pyramid Stage headliner Kanye West.
“We’re just before the headline act, Rudimental, on the Other Stage, on Friday night. Everyone says that’s the spot. We were originally meant to play on Saturday, but you just can’t be on at the same time as Kanye, so I was like, ‘Please move us!’”
