The Lovely Eggs have announced that a new track ‘I, Moron’ featuring Iggy Pop will be released 03 July this year via their label, Egg Records.

The new single follows from the band’s sixth studio album, I Am Moron, released in April 2020 to critical acclaim.

Iggy Pop played the Lancaster band on his 6 Music radio show before collaborating with them on the new track.

“Being in The Lovely Eggs we’re kind of used to surreal experiences but collaborating with Iggy Pop takes the biscuit,” exclaims singer and guitarist Holly Ross.

“It’s actually unbelievable. For him just to say nothing but “moron” over and over again fitted in with the sentiment of the song perfectly. He just got it. We are all morons. In a world of moronic things. In a world of moronic ideas. You are moron. I am Moron. We are Moron.”

In a further homage to Iggy, the B-side features The Lovely Eggs own take on ‘Dum Dum Boys’ from Iggy’s defining 1977 album The Idiot.

The single will feature artwork (pictured above) by Casey Raymond on one thousand yellow coloured vinyl 7” singles, recorded by The Lovely Eggs in Lancaster and mixed by Dave Fridmann at Tarbox Road Studios, NYC.

The band have also announced their rescheduled tour for 2021 and 2022 with upgraded venues in Bristol and Brighton.
