Iggy Pop Shares Cover Of Sly & The Family Stone’s ‘Family Affair’

Iggy Pop has shared a cover version of Sly & the Family Stone‘s classic “Family Affair.”

Pop dropped the cover version of “Family Affair” on his 75th birthday. He had recorded the rendition in 1985 and recently rediscovered the recording amid coronavirus lockdown.

“I’ve always loved this song, it came out when I was kinda on the ropes in 1971. There’s a lot of truth in it, especially in the second verse, about all sorts of questions that are coming around again now,” Pop told BBC 6Music‘s Lauren Laverne.

“I loved the music and I love what Bootsy [Collins] did with it. Bootsy’s a great star and there is so much life in his playing, and so much personality and truth in who he is,” he added. “It was a big thrill to work with him and Bill Laswell. It just sat there for a long time because it just wasn’t right vis a vis the noise and constant shifting and churning of the horrible pop scene (sorry), and also in light of the other things I was doing.”
