Iggy Pop Covers The Beatles, Frank Sinatra On Apres


Iggy Pop says he is gearing up to release a new covers album, Apres, which features his renditions of several of his favorite artists including the Beatles ("Michelle"), Frank Sinatra ("Only the Lonely") and Edith Piaf ("La Vie en Rose").

"All popular music forms of today get their strength from the beat. Rap, hip-hop, metal, pop and rock producers will tell you that the beats they use imitate the human heartbeat and that is where the power lies," Iggy said of the album in a statement.

"I've always loved this other feeling, one that is intimate, sometimes a little sad, and does not try to beat me on the head," he added.

Apres, the follow up to 2009's Preliminaires, is due May 9.

Track list:

"Et Si Tu N'existais Pas"

"La Javanaise"

"Everybody's Talkin""

"I"m Going Away Smiling"

"La Vie En Rose"

"Les Passantes"


"What Is This Thing Called Love?"


"Only The Lonely"
