    The icon known as Iggy Pop is releasing an album of covers, most of 'em French. The 10-track Après will provide the punk rocker's renditions of songs by Edith Piaf, Serge Gainsbourg, the Beatles, Frank Sinatra, Yoko Ono, Harry Nilsson, and more. Bring it, Ig!

    "Many of these songs are in French, probably because it is French culture which has most stubbornly resisted the mortal attacks of the Anglo-American music machine," he said.

    Après drops May 9.

    Track Listing:

    1 Et Si Tu N'Existais Pas (Joe Dassin cover)
    2 La Javanaise (Serge Gainsbourg cover)
    3 Everybody's Talkin' (Harry Nilsson cover)
