Iggy Pop Just Got A Golden Globe Nomination For ‘Gold’, A Song We Have Never Heard

Iggy Pop received a nomination for his first Golden Globe ever. It was quite a year for the godfather of punk, earlier this year, he released ‘Post Pop Depression’ a collaboration with Queens of the Stone Age’s Joshua Homme, the album was followed by a tour with a first class band (I saw them at the Greek theater in LA and it was a lot of fun), then Jim Jarmusch made ‘Gimme danger’, his love letter to Iggy and the Stooges..

And this week Iggy got nominated for the Golden Globe of the Best Original Song, for ‘Gold’, a song he co-wrote with Danger Mouse featured in the upcoming Matthew McConaughey film, ‘Gold’. I have been combing the entire web for the song, but it seems it is totally nowhere to be found,… how can a song that nobody has ever heard, can be nominated? The foreign press has certainly heard it if it was nominated, but this lets us, the public, completely out of the loop! This is what Iggy had to say about the mysterious tune:

‘This beautiful and unpredictable film spoke to me of violence, desire, destiny, lust and the inescapable twists of fate. The actors and the story spun a web of excitement that left me spent and breathless, so I tried to perform the vocal with that feeling in mind… I found myself at a new level of communication, standing there in the studio with Steve Gaghan and Danger Mouse, singing ‘GOLD’ — a song for our times.’

Pop collaborated with Brian Burton (aka Danger Mouse), Stephen Gaghan and Daniel Pemberton for the music and lyrics of the song, but their work will face a very harsh competition because it is nominated in the same category than songs from ‘Trolls’, ‘La La Land’, ‘Sing’ and ‘Moana’, featuring works from Justin Timberlake, Ryan Tedder, Lin-Manuel Miranda and more.

The interesting part of the story is that a Golden Globes nomination sometimes leads to an Oscar nomination, and if songs are not performed at the Golden Globes, they are at the Oscars! Imagine a shirtless Iggy on the stage of the Kodak theater, doing his usual stage antics in front of Clooney and Streep? That would definitively make me watch the ceremony.

Meanwhile, there is a trailer for the movie, but the music is Styx’s Renegade’, so the mystery stays complete.
