Cage the Elephant fans have just been gifted a new version of “Broken Boy” featuring the iconic snarl of Iggy Pop.
The band shared the track, which opens their latest album Social Cues, to their YouTube channel today (January 23.) Frontman Matt Schultz saying in a statement about the collaboration with Pop, “He’s such a pioneer in so many fields: lyrically, culturally, poetically, visually, musically, and stylistically. Only a couple times in your life do you have the opportunity to share a moment with a visionary and beautiful human as he is. I’m grateful and blown away to have experienced and witnessed, not just his creativity, but also his kindness, humility, and humanness first hand. Such a testimony to the power of love.”
Pop, in his own statement, said, “Cage is a super high energy outfit, living the Rock dream, so for a couple of fun minutes I was one of the boys. Sounds pretty wicked to me.”
