The almighty IGGY POP isn’t quite ready for retirement following last year’s critically acclaimed new album Post Pop Depression. Now, the legendary punk spirit teamed up with producer Brian Burton aka DANGER MOUSE for a new song that is part of the soundtrack for Gold, a new Matthew McConaughey-starring film, directed by Stephen Gaghan. They already received a Golden Globe nomination for their musical joint venture but lost to the musical La La Land (like so many others).
The new IGGY POP track is also inspired by the entire Daniel Pemberton’s spaghetti-Western theme of the film which gives the track its sinister character. About the recordings with Burton the singer states: ‘In the studio, he very assiduously and energetically directed the vocal, which is what I want when you’re working with a producer. Phrasing, intonation, vowel pronunciation – a lot of stuff like that. Little by little, the thing kept getting better and more conversational and less sing-songy.’
This is as IGGY as it can get, ladies and gentlemen. Witness it below.
