It’s not difficult to state that Iggy Pop is an icon of epic proportions. Primarily shirtless and free the vocalist has always offered up the utmost respect for anything he releases. In 2019 Pop released his latest solo album Free and now he’s releasing a video for the track “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night.”
With jazz fueled tones underneath, Pop faces the screen and reads the words of the Dylan Thomas poem with his usual baritone. The emotion of the words apparent on his emotive face, the reading feels more like a public service announcement in some ways. Pop delivers the poem with ease and pain, evoking emotion in just his voice.
The video can be streamed above or on YouTube. The song is available to stream on all platforms. Free is ready to purchase directly from Loma Vista Recordings. Iggy Pop will perform at Primavera Sound in Barcelona, Spain on June 03.
