Daily noise that works faster than any stimulant
4 November 2023
British famous singer-songwriter-producer TREVOR HORN (now 74),
who scored a No 1 UK hit in 1979 with his one-time project Buggles and their pop
tune Video Killed The Radio Star (more than 323 million streams on Spotify) has canned
an album of 11 covers. It’s called Echoes: Ancient & Modern and comes out on December 1. The record features several celebrities on vocals.
One of the covered songs is PERSONAL JESUS, the 24-Carat Depeche Mode classic
from 1990. Horn invited eternal punk IGGY POP to do the singing. An inch-perfect
decision. At the age of 76 he still sounds like he wants to be your dog. His performance here is bone-chilling.
Horn about Iggy: “Iggy adds another truth to whatever he does. We didn’t let the Johnny Cash version enter our thinking. We came to it as though there was only the Depeche Mode universe and here’s Iggy swinging it his way on some deviant variety TV show he happens to host.”
