Punk legend Iggy Pop has released a new song, ‘Asshole Blues,’ as part of a new flexi disc series on the record label Mag Mag, which was founded by the band Jacuzzi Boys. It’s a traditional lo-fi acoustic blues song which Iggy performs on guitar while singing in his distinctive mournful warble.
Iggy brings punk vitriol to this traditional blues song. Explaining the song to Rolling Stone, Iggy said, “I wrote a blues song about an asshole who’s out to get me. It’s full of negative energy.” Listen here:
