Iggy Pop and Matt Sweeney recently shared their cover of The Velvet Underground‘s “European Son.”
The cover version will be part of the upcoming tribute album I’ll Be Your Mirror: A Tribute to the Velvet Underground & Nico, executive produced by the late Hal Willner. The compilation is due out on September 24 via Verve Records.
“The Velvet Underground were rock and roll’s finest band. Iggy Pop remains rock and roll’s greatest singer,” Sweeney said in a statement. “I am thrilled and humbled that the joyous experience of getting deeply nasty with Iggy on ‘European Son’ can be heard by lifelong VU fans and newcomers.”
The album also features contributions from Michael Stipe, Matt Berninger, Andrew Bird, Lucius, Kurt Vile & The Violators, St. Vincent & Thomas Bartlett, Thurston Moore, Bobby Gillespie, King Princess, Courtney Barnett and Fontaines D.C.
