News__ Iggy Pop’s Second French Album

Iggy Pop en francias?

Iggy Pop is really showing us his inner Francophile. Following up on his last French influenced album, Préliminaires, Iggy Pop has announced he will be releasing another francais-inspired album, titled Après.

The album, which will be released May 9, will be made up of cover songs sung almost entirely in French. You can expect to hear things like Edith Piaf’s La Vie En Rose, The Beatles Michelle, and La Javanaise by Serge Gainsbourg.

We wouldn’t expect anything too shirtless or punk sounding after his last album though, think a smokey lounge in Paris. When Iggy cleans up, he cleans up french.
