IGGY POP RELEASES JAMES BOND
SECOND ADVANCE TRACK FROM NEW ALBUM FREE OUT SEPTEMBER 6 ON LOMA VISTA RECORDINGS
Toronto, ON – July 30, 2019 – Iggy Pop has unwound a drastically different track from his coming album, Free. James Bond tells a story: ‘I don't know what she's up to exactly, but the tables seem to be turning, and she's taking over. Well, why not? I’ll try anything once.’
"I’ve never had more fun singing a lyric. Faith’s reading is so loaded, and Leron’s production and trumpet along with the band swings like crazy,” says Iggy.
While Free follows the highest charting album of Iggy’s career, 2016’s Grammy-nominated Post Pop Depression, it has virtually nothing in common sonically with its predecessor—or with any other Iggy Pop album. As The New York Times remarked upon hearing the title track,
"Iggy Pop’s ‘Free' is brief, atmospheric and elusive. Amid sustained electronic tones from the guitarist Noveller and ghostly overdubbed Miles Davis-tinged trumpet lines from Leron Thomas, Pop’s voice appears only a few times, intoning, 'I wanna be free.' As the title song and opening track of an album due in September, it could lead anywhere."
