Cage the Elephant team up with Iggy Pop in 'Broken Boy'

The band has released an alternate version of "Broken Boy," which appeared on their latest and fifth album "Social Cues."

This new version features Iggy Pop on backing vocals, with Cage the Elephant frontman Matt Shultz saying that the Godfather of Punk is "such a pioneer in so many fields: lyrically, culturally, poetically, visually, musically and stylistically."

"Only a couple times in your life do you have the opportunity to share a moment with a visionary and beautiful human as he is. I'm grateful and blown away to have experienced and witnessed, not just his creativity, but also his kindness, humility and humanness first hand. Such a testimony to the power of love," Schultz added about the collaboration.

In other news, Cage the Elephant have just wrapped up their two-month tour with Beck and Spoon, during which the "Melophobia" rockers performed several cuts from their Grammy-nominated "Social Cues."

According to Rolling Stone, the band's performance at the Austin City Limits festival will air on Saturday, January 25 as part of the long-running PBS show's 45th season.

Additionally, Cage the Elephant have been nominated for Best Rock Album at this weekend's 62nd Grammy Awards for "Social Cues," with Schultz and his bandmates competing against Bring Me The Horizon, The Cranberries, I Prevail and Rival Sons.

The band also earned nominations in the categories "Alternative Rock Artist of the Year" and "Alternative Rock Song of the Year" for "Ready to Let Go" at the 2020 iHeartRadio Music Awards, which will take place on March 29 in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, Iggy Pop dropped his 18th studio album, "Free," back in September.

The musician notably recorded the follow-up to 2016's "Post Pop Depression" with jazz trumpeter and composer Leron Thomas as well as Noveller, the solo project of guitarist Sarah Lipstate.
