Cage The Elephant has shared a new version of their song “Broken Boy,” featuring Iggy Pop. The track finds the godfather of punk singing a verse and contributing backing vocals to the opening song off the band’s celebrated fifth studio album, Social Cues (RCA). Listen to “Broken Boy” featuring Iggy Pop below.
Said Iggy Pop about his collaboration with the band: “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.” Iggy Pop’s latest album Free is out now and available here.
Frontman Matt Shultz spoke of his adoration of Iggy “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.”
Cage The Elephant has also been nominated for Best Rock Album at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards for Social Cues. The honor marks the third time the band has been nominated. The band won 2017’s Best Rock Album GRAMMY for Tell Me I’m Pretty and were nominated in 2015 for Best Alternative Music Album for Melophobia. The 62nd GRAMMY will air Sunday, January 26th.
Additionally, the band has been nominated for both “Alternative Rock Artist Of The Year” and “Alternative Rock Song Of The Year” for “Ready To Let Go” at the 2020 iHeartRadio Music Awards. The ceremony will take place on Sunday, March 29th at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, and a full list of nominees is available here.
The band recently wrapped up their two-month long amphitheater “The Night Running Tour” with Beck featuring Spoon in the US.
