Iggy Pop Recruits the Roots for ‘James Bond’ Performance on ‘Fallon’
Iggy Pop recruited the Roots, jazz trumpeter Leron Thomas, guitarist Noveller and a shirt to perform his song “James Bond” on Wednesday’s Tonight Show.

The Stooges singer warbled, eyes closed, over a compact, noir-ish dual guitar riff and metronomic time-keeping from Questlove. “She walks like him, talks like him too/She can suss out the spy, even if it’s you,” he sang. “She trusts no one, not even herself/She makes no sudden moves, chalks it up to stealth.”

James Bond” appears on the punk icon’s newly released 18th solo LP Free.

Iggy Pop has shared his synth-laden new single “Sonali” from his upcoming album Free, due out September 6th. “Are you tuning in to our listening party?,” Pop asked on Facebook Thursday.

Like Free’s previous singles “James Bond” and the title track, the Stooges frontman croons over a backing that’s more jazz ensemble than garage rock, with trumpeter and “Sonali” co-writer Leron Thomas contributing another standout solo to the track.

“Stack on the clay, pile up the rocks, high off the ground, chisel it down,” bellows Pop. “To park

Iggy Pop keeps it simple on his new single, “James Bond.” The low-key, repetitive track centers on a minimal beat and thumping guitar line as the rock star croons, “She wants to be your James Bond/ Well, it’s not for a price/ And it’s not to be nice/ She wants to be your James Bond.” The single was written and produced by Leron Thomas, a jazz trumpeter and composer.

Iggy Pop has shared a short but mesmerizing new song, “Free,” which will serve as the title-track for his next album, out September 6th via Loma Vista.

“Free” finds Iggy Pop exploring ambient soundscapes tinged with jazz, as soft synths sail underneath a swell of horns and a lead trumpet wanders off on its own path. Iggy Pop’s vocal contributions are simple yet effective in this setting, with the rocker uttering, “I wanna be free” at the beginning and end of the tune.

‘Peaky Blinders’ Composer Antony Genn Talks About the Show’s Innovative Music in Hilarious Midem Chat

‘Peaky Blinders’ Composer Antony Genn Talks About the Show’s Innovative Music in Hilarious Midem Chat
Even in the current golden age of innovative television, the popular British crime drama “Peaky Blinders” has set a daring standard for its use of music, with original songs by Nick Cave, Laura Marling, Johnny Cash, the White Stripes and many more. Composer, music director, producer and artist Antony Genn, whose sprawling career has included stints with Pulp, Joe Strummer, Elastica and his own group The Hours, is responsible for the show’s music since season four, and brings a refreshingly punk attitude to an often sedate musical form that adds even more grit to the already gritty Cillian Murphy-starring show.

Genn’s musical career began in his teens when schoolfriend Jarvis Cocker asked him, “Do you fancy playing bass in our band?” “I don’t know how to play bass,” Genn replied. “Don’t worry about that, none of us can really play.” As is shown by this

Review: The Mekons Reboot Their Anglo-American Punk-Country-Dub on ‘Deserted’

California’s High Desert is heavy with rock history. It’s where country-rock icon Gram Parsons had his corpse cremated by friends; where an Irish band found a name and cover image for a great LP; where Jim Morrison dropped acid and made a movie; where Josh Homme and Kyuss cooked up stoner rock. Now The Mekons — those zany, erudite and beloved British punk-country-reggae-rock survivors — join the processional with Deserted. Recorded near Joshua Tree, the LP loses itself in the desert and finds timely survival metaphors everywhere. And it burrows

Chris Cornell Documentary Coming From Brad Pitt

Tony Sokol Feb 18, 2019

Brad Pitt and Peter Berg’s Film 45 will document the late Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman.

"Cry, if you want to cry," Chris Cornell sang on the song "My Wave." Brad Pitt and Peter Berg’s production company Film 45 will help you see and clear your eyes in a documentary about the late frontman and songwriter for Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple of the Dog, according to Variety. Cornell’s widow, Vicky Cornell, will participate as a producer. Paramount recently yanked Pitt's World War Z 2, which he hoped to make with Fight Club director David Fincher, from its production schedule. Berg will direct the as-yet-untitled movie. No other details of the Chris Cornell documentary have been announced.

Cornell died on May 18, 2017, a few hours after a Soundgarden show at Detroit's Fox Theater. His death was ruled a suicide. An autopsy revealed painkillers and anti-anxiety medication in Cornell's bloodstream.

Brad Pitt Is Making a Chris Cornell Documentary with Director Peter Berg

Brad Pitt Is Making a Chris Cornell Documentary with Director Peter Berg
A Chris Cornell Documentary is on the way from Brad Pitt and Peter Berg. Cornell's widow, Vicky, is also a producer and Berg will direct the project, which is currently in development. The Soundgarden front man passed away nearly two years ago at the age of 52. As a singer, Cornell had impressive range that skipped octaves effortlessly, going from banshee scream to a low timbre, blowing away his peers to become one of the best front men in rock history. He and Pitt were good friends, so we should be in for a special treat when the documentary drops.

There is no release date scheduled for the Chris Cornell documentary, though it's not too hard to imagine that it will be out early next year. In January, Cornell's wife Vicky and his friends put on a tribute show in Los Angeles, which was set up to raise money for the

Chris Cornell’s friends and family offered up many heartfelt tributes at Los Angeles’ Forum Wednesday night, but the one that captured his essence best improbably came from Jack Black. “Sometimes Chris Cornell would sing a note that didn’t exist,” he told the sold-out crowd. “Sometimes [he] would sing a note that was between two real notes, and it would open a portal into another dimension. I don’t know if that’s true. Like, maybe it was probably a real note – it was probably a C-flat – but it was

D’Angelo F-cking Loves Playing ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’

D’Angelo F-cking Loves Playing ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’
There are few contemporary working artists who maintain a more idiosyncratic release schedule than D’Angelo. He’s famous for tinkering and revising his music, eating up years and hundreds of reels of analog tape on his way to an eventual album. It took him 14 years to follow up 2000’s smash hit Voodoo with his most recent album, Black Messiah. In that time, three U.S. presidents occupied the White House, Facebook was invented, and D’Angelo released precisely zero songs.

So it was a surprise when a new D’Angelo track titled “May I?
