Mac DeMarco directs new 'Sonali' video for Iggy Pop

A few months after the release of his latest album, the punk icon unveiled the "officially unofficial" video for "Sonali," which was written by Ruby Sylvain and Leron Thomas.

The colorful visual was directed by Canadian musician Mac DeMarco, who notably enlisted his girlfriend Kiera McNally and Tommy Midnight to portray a couple of well-dressed lizards.

As Pitchfork pointed out, the video marked the return of the DeMarco's Lizard Man, who made his debut in the visual for "Nobody" from the vocalist's "Here Comes the Cowboy."

The clip for "Sonali" follows the journey of Midnight's character as he is struggling to make it home during rush hour.

After finding himself stuck at a gas station, Midnight parks his fur-covered convertible on the side of the road to take a call from McNally -- with the two protagonists professing their love for each other back and forth.

"Stack on the clay, pile up the rocks/High off the ground, chisel it down/To park the car we must find parking/On the freeway, stay in your lane," Pop croons over a trumpet-filled melody.

"Sonali" appears on the Godfather of Punk's 20th studio album, "Free," which arrived in September, three years after his "Post Pop Depression" LP.

Pop notably collaborated on the album with jazz trumpeter and composer Leron Thomas as well as guitarist Sarah Lipstate, who is also known under the moniker Novella.

"This is an album in which other artists speak for me, but I lend my voice," the 72-year-old musician said of "Free" in a statement.

More recently, he also contributed to the upcoming tribute album, "If You're Going to the City: A Tribute to Mose Allison," in homage to the late jazz pianist and singer Mose Allison.

Other guest collaborators on the Mose Allison tribute include Fiona Apple, Frank Black, Chrissie Hynde, Richard Thompson and Elvis Costello.

Meanwhile, Mac DeMarco shared his fourth studio album, "Here Comes the Cowboy," last May via his own Mac's Record Label.
