American rock band Cage the Elephant have collaborated with Iggy Pop in a new version of their track “Broken Boy.”
The track comes off their fifth album Social Cues, which was released last spring and has been nominated for Best Rock Album of 2020 Grammys. On this version that features Pop, who provides his vocals for a verse then adds backing vocals for the track. “Cage is a super high energy outfit, living the rock dream, so for a couple of fun minutes I was one of the boys,” Pop explains in a statement.
“He’s such a pioneer in so many fields: lyrically, culturally, poetically, visually, musically, and stylistically,” Cage the Elephant frontman Matt Shultz explains in a statement. “Only a couple times in your life do you have the opportunity to share a moment with a visionary and beautiful human as he is. I’m grateful and blown away to have experienced and witnessed, not just his creativity, but also his kindness, humility, and humanness first hand. Such a testimony to the power of love.”
