Iggy Pop makes his feelings on COVID-19 clear with a new song called “Dirty Little Virus.”

“I was moved to write a direct lyric,” the Godfather of Punk says in a video message accompanying the track. “Not something too emotional or deep. More like journalism: who, what, when where. I left out the why because that gets too complex, but I put in how I felt about it.”

“It was a stopper for me,” Pop adds of the pandemic. “It’s been the big thing happening in my life — and everybody else’s, I reckon — for almost a year now.”

You can download “Dirty Little Virus” now via Pop’s Bandcamp page.

“Dirty Little Virus” follows Pop’s 2019 album, Free.
