This Is What I Do is a 2013 album by Boy George. It is produced by Richie Stevens. It is the first time since the mid-nineties that a sober George took the time to really complete a full-length. It did gain good to very good reviews, The Guardian calling it "the best comeback of the year". It was Boy George's first album in the UK top 40 since 1987's Sold.

The three songs that were selected as "focus track", with a video, are "King Of Everything", "My God" and "Nice And Slow". A dub version, named "This Is What I Dub", featuring cameos from Sinead O'Connor, Dennis Bovvell and George Clinton, is scheduled for the end of the year.
