Iggy Pop Plans Covers Album
The Beatles, Frank Sinatra and Edith Piaf all get the Iggy Pop treatment on the veteran rocker's new album, "Apres", to be released May 9. Tracks includes Pop's take on Sinatra's "Only The Lonely", The Beatles' "Michelle" and a remarkable version of Edith Piaf's "La Vie En Rose". According to NME, Iggy said: "All popular music forms of today get their strength from the beat. Rap, hip-hop, metal, pop, and rock producers will tell you that the beats they use imitate the human heartbeat and that is where the power lies. "I wanted to sing some of these songs myself, hoping to bring the feeling I felt as a listener to my listeners through my voice. Many of these songs are in French, probably because it is French culture which has most stubbornly resisted the mortal attacks of the Anglo-American music machine." The tracklisting for "Apres" is as follows: 01. Et Si Tu N'Existais Pas 02. La Javanaise 03. Everybody's Talkin' 04. I'm Going Away Smiling 05. La Vie En Rose 06. Les Passantes 07. Syracuse 08. What Is This Thing Called Love? 09. Michelle 10. Only The Lonely Thanks for the report to Andrew Vaughan, Gibson.com.
