The pair have apparently recorded a track called ‘Let’s Boot and Rally’, which will appear in the episode which airs in the US on July 8. Pitchfork reports that the song will receive its radio debut a few days before the television broadcast date, on July 5.
Of the collaboration Iggy Pop has said: “I’ve always liked to bite. I guess this makes me a singing vampire, does this mean I have a licence to suck? Hi Bethany…”
The movie will be directed by Randal Miller – who has co-written the script with Jody Savin – and is set to start shooting in Savannah, Georgia, before moving to New York. The pair are also currently putting together a biopic about Dennis Wilson, the late solo musician and drummer with The Beach Boys.
