Måneskin Release New Version Of “I Wanna Be Your Slave” Featuring Iggy Pop

Måneskin have joined forces with Iggy Pop for a new version of their song “I Wanna Be Your Slave.” You can check that out below. The original version of the track appears on the band’s latest album “Teatro D’ira: Vol I.” The group commented on the new version of the song:

“It was such an honor that Iggy loved our music and wanted to work with us. It was touching seeing him sing ‘I Wanna Be Your Slave’ live in front of us. It was very powerful to see such a big artist being so open and friendly. We all grew up listening to his music and he inspired us to start up a band. It’s still unbelievable for us that we had the chance to get to know him and make music together.”

Iggy Pop Premieres New Song “Dirty Little Virus”

Iggy Pop has premiered a new song titled “Dirty Little Virus.” The track was inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic and the frontman had the following to say about it:

“I was moved to write a direct lyric, not something too emotional or deep — more like journalism. Who, what, when, where. I left out the ‘why,’ because that gets too complex, but I put in how I felt about it. It was a stopper for me. It’s been the big thing happening in my life, and everybody else’s, I reckon, for almost a year now. If there was still a Man Of The Year, it would be the virus. So, I wrote the lyric.”

Iggy Pop To Release New Album “Free” In September

Iggy Pop has announced that his new album “Free” will be released on September 6. You can stream the effort’s title track below:

Pop commented:

“This is an album in which other artists speak for me, but I lend my voice…

By the end of the tours following ‘Post Pop Depression’, I felt sure that I had rid myself of the problem of chronic insecurity that had dogged my life and career for too long. But I also felt drained. And I felt like I wanted to put on shades, turn my back, and walk away. I wanted to be free. I know that’s an illusion, and that freedom is only something you feel, but I have lived my life thus far in the belief that that feeling is all that is worth pursuing; all that you need — not happiness or love necessarily, but the feeling of being free. So this album just kind of happened to me, and I let it happen.”
