Iggy Pop Features On New Version Of Danny Elfman’s ‘Kick Me’
Iggy Pop has collaborated with Danny Elfman on a new version of Elfman’s track, Kick Me, which is out now.
The original version of Kick Me was first heard on Elfman’s 2021 solo album, Big Mess, his first solo LP in 37 years.
The Iggy-featuring Kick Me will appear on a new Big Mess remix album, titled Bigger Messier. The album will feature a host of new collaborators, as well as previously released collaborations with Trent Reznor (True and Native Intelligence), Squarepusher and Zach Hill.
“At the onset of Bigger Messier I asked the same thing of every artist: ‘Express me through your own eyes,’” Elfman said in a statement about the new record.
“Not only was I surprised at the artists that wanted to participate, but completely blown away by what everyone contributed. There’s a tremendous amount of diversity represented throughout, and I couldn’t be more excited to announce the record with Iggy’s version of ‘Kick Me’, which not only serves as a reinvention of the song vocally, but instrumentally as well.
“This record became such an enjoyment of experimentation and relinquishing control of my own work in a way that I’ve never done before.”
