Sonali offers a mix of quintessential jazz beats, an eerie ambient melody, Iggy’s characteristic delivery. However, the highlight of the track may just be the gorgeous trumpet solo that can be heard in the last minute of the song. James Bond also contains a stunning trumpet solo in its own right.
Iggy Pop drops a haunting new track Sonali from his upcoming eighteenth studio album Free, set for release on September 6th.
The track is taken from the punk icon’s eighteenth studio album, which is set for release on September 6th. Pop has described Free as “an album in which other artists speak for me, but I lend my voice.” He went on to say, “all that you need – not happiness or love necessarily, but the feeling of being free. So this album just kind of happened to me, and I let it happen.”
The lyricism is just as ambiguous those from James Bond. Interpret them how you wish: “To park the car/We must find parking/On the freeway/Stay in your lane.” One thing’s for sure, Pop is as mysterious as they come.
