Iggy Pop has united with acclaimed composer and former Oingo Boingo frontman Danny Elfman for a new version of the latter’s song “Kick Me.”
The track, which finds the Godfather of Punk spitting lines, including “Kick me/I’m a celebrity,” will appear on Elfman’s upcoming album Bigger. Messier., a “remixed and reimagined” version of his 2021 album, Big Mess.
“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,” Elfman says.
You can listen to the song now via digital outlets.
Bigger. Messier. will be released August 12. It also includes Elfman’s previously released collaborations with Nine Inch Nails‘ Trent Reznor, “True” and “Native Intelligence,” as well as a track with FEVER 333.
