Iggy Pop and Elvis Costello have been friends since 1977 but this is the first time they’ve released a song together. In a joint interview over at Rolling Stone, Costello admits that he was deliberately channelling The Stooges on “No Flag”: “That should have been a clue right away. It shared one word and one letter with a famous song of yours, but nobody spotted where it was drawing from, because nobody expects me to take a cue from you.”
