Iggy Pop has announced new 2xCD reissues of his classic albums The Idiot and Lust for Life. In addition to remastered versions of the original albums, the reissues feature bonus live discs: Live at The Rainbow Theatre, recorded at London’s Finsbury Park in 1977, and TV Eye Live, respectively.
The Stooges founder is also releasing a more expansive box set called The Bowie Years, a 7xCD collection that includes those two reissues as well as demos and rarities and other live recordings from his time working with David Bowie in Berlin. All of these arrive May 29 via UMe. Check out an alternate mix of “China Girl” below, taken from the larger box set.
Iggy Pop’s most recent album, a collaborative LP with Noveller and Leron Thomas titled Free, was released last year. Earlier this month, he joined Jane Birkin on Fallon for a rendition of Serge Gainsbourg’s “Elisa.”
