More Than Silence

Songfacts®:

  • Culture Club's first new song in 15 years finds Boy George singing about his desire for "a little more than silence." The frontman explained: "Artists make complicated lovers because they always need an audience. I always say 'silence is the loudest sound in the universe.' A blue moon in a lonely sky."

    "[Guitarist] Roy [Hay] always wanted to rock out a little," George added. "I think we finally created a song which gives him the opportunity."
