Iggy Pop Started Working On Metalcore Project ONI
Iggy Pop has decided to go metal on a new track called ‘Secrets’. This track will also feature Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe. The Canadian band’s forthcoming second album is set to arrive in June.
‘Secrets’ will be a collaboration between ONI which is the brainchild of Jake Oni and Blythe. But later the pair decided to include a second guest vocalist Iggy Pop. The song comes with a dark video which is directed by Jeremy Danger and Travis Shinn.
Oni explained in a press release, “Iggy’s vocals are so iconic and instantly recognizable, his style is what we were after. But we figured, let’s see if we can get the man himself to check it out. He came down, we had some food and just chilled. And then he did his thing all over the song.”
He also added, “He asked me for ideas about how to approach it, which was just crazy and cool. It all worked so well and came out sick.”
Blythe said about this music project, “It was awesome to work with Jake again, and of course the usual suspects, my compatriots Mark Morton and Josh Wilbur – always a good time. But to be on a track and film a video with one of my biggest influences as frontman, the OG godfather of punk, and living legend Iggy Pop? Completely priceless.”
