Iggy Pop has premiered the video for “We Are the People,” a song off his new album, Free.
The clip stars the Godfather of Punk in one continuous, unbroken shot of his face as performs the track, a spoken-word interpretation of a 1970 poem written by Lou Reed. You can watch it now streaming on YouTube.
Free, Pop’s 18th solo effort, was released last September. This Saturday, March 7, Iggy will sign limited-edition “test pressings” of Free at the Perrotin art gallery in New York City. Visit Perrotin.com for more info.
