Underworld and Iggy Pop have announced that they will release an EP together, titled ‘Teatime Dub Encounters’, next month.

“Iggy was staying at The Savoy and graciously said, ‘Yeah, you know, we can meet and talk about something’ because we both felt a strong connection to ‘Trainspotting’ and to Danny [Boyle]”, says Underworld’s Rick Smith of how the project came together. “I turned up thinking I’ve got one chance here to convince this gentleman that we should work together. So I turned up with basically half my studio, hired a hotel room, set up and sat waiting”.

Iggy Pop adds: “When you are confronted with somebody who has a whole bloody studio there in the hotel room, a Skyped director who has won the Oscar recently and a fucking microphone in front of you and 30 finished pieces of very polished music, you don’t want to be the wimp that goes ‘uh uhhh’, so my mind was racing”.

The EP is set for release on 27 Jul.┬áListen to ‘I’ll See Big’ here:
