Iggy Pop Re-Envisions Danny Elfman’s ‘Kick Me’ For Upcoming Album

Danny Elfman has announced Bigger. Messier., a brand new genre-defying album of remixed and reimagined versions of songs from his acclaimed 2021 record Big Mess and shared the first track, “Kick Me” featuring the legendary Iggy Pop.

The re-envisioned version of “Kick Me” brings out Iggy’s signature conversational essence along with instrumental contributions from Leron Thomas.

“Kick me/ I’m a celebrity,” Iggy says, before drawling like a game show announcer, “Losers not invited.” It’s a pretty funny mashup, especially when the artist growls, “I’m a selfish asshole” over Elfman’s frenetic strings.

The 21-track record features collaborations and guest vocal features from a slew of artists including Trent Reznor, HEALTH, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Zach Hill of Death Grips, Xiu Xiu, Squarepusher, Ghostemane and several others.

Bigger. Messier. will be out on August 12 via ANTI-/Epitaph Records, and distributed by Republic. It will be available in vinyl, CD and digital formats, with two exclusive bonus tracks featured on the digital edition.
