“This is an album in which other artists speak for me, but I lend my voice,” explains Iggy Pop of Free, which was created in collaboration with jazz trumpeter Leron Thomas and guitarist Noveller AKA Sarah Lipstate.

The surprisingly downbeat album includes takes on poems by Lou Reed (“We Are The People”) and Dylan Thomas (“Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night”).

The September 2019 issue of Uncut is on sale from July 18, and available to order online now – with The Who on the cover. Inside, you’ll find Blue Note, Dr John, Quentin Tarantino, Joan Shelley, Ty Segall, Buzzcocks, Ride, Lucinda Williams, Lloyd Cole and more. Our 15-track CD also showcases the best of the month’s new music, including Modern Nature, Sleater-Kinney, Ezra Furman and more.
