Punk rock singer-songwriter Iggy Pop has collaborated with Jamie Saft’s trio on their experimental jazz record Loneliness Road. The album will be released on May 26 via Rare Noise Records.
The vocalist of The Stooges, who celebrated his 70th birthday on April 21, wrote the lyrics of the three songs of Loneliness Road he sings on, including the title track. He recorded his vocal tracks at a studio near his home in Miami, Florida.
In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, Pop revealed that one of the reasons he decided to collaborate on this project was that “since I was a little kid I’ve always been very fond of quieter, maybe more introspective sort of music – everything from Floyd Cramer to Debussy to Sinatra’s September of My Years – that song cycle was on constant rotation in our little trailer when I was going to high school.”
The trio of multi-instrumentalist Jamie Saft features bassist Steve Swallow and Bobby Previte. For more information, go to http://www.rarenoiserecords.com/
