Iggy Pop Releases New Song ‘Frenzy’ Featuring Duff McKagan And Chad Smith
Iggy Pop seems to have no plans to stop, even after five decades of being an avid figure on the rock scene. The 75-year-old rocker just released a new single, ‘Frenzy,’ featuring Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan on the bass and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith on the drums.
Iggy had previously chatted with Billboard about his upcoming record, and he had especially pointed out his eagerness to work with Gold Tooth Records and producer Andrew Watt on the project. His last album, ‘Free,’ was released in 2019 by another label company, and thus, Pop was enthusiastic about collaborating with his new record label, Gold Tooth.
The rocker had stated that his new album was made the old-fashioned way, as he had the chance to embrace his roots as a punk rocker. His previous album, ‘Free,’ had more of a jazzy approach to it, so the new record was going to be different than his recent projects. Pop has also spoken about how he had the chance to work with musicians he knew very well and how that contributed to the album’s creation process.
His new track ‘Frenzy’ was released on October 28, and the song proved that Iggy had returned to his punk roots. The single features GNR bassist Duff McKagan with Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith taking his place behind the drums. Iggy’s producer Andrew Watt was also featured in the song as he played the guitar parts.
Watt had previously collaborated with Ozzy Osbourne on the rocker’s latest album, ‘Patient Number 9.’ He is also known for his works with Post Malone, Miley Cyrus, and Dua Lipa. Iggy Pop seemed happy about working with Andrew, and this track also reflects the rocker’s wish to return to his roots.
