Le Butcherettes release the video for La Uva, featuring Teri Gender Bender and Iggy Pop performing the song from the outfit’s recently released album, ‘A Raw Youth’ (physical: http://bit.ly/1JmtaCP; digital: http://hyperurl.co/cfvgxi). Watch it via YouTube below.
La Uva marks the first time Iggy Pop has recorded a song in Spanish with a band. The video was recorded at Iggy Pop’s house in Miami, Fla. under the direction of producer and director, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez.
Le Butcherettes and Iggy Pop met during a tour where the Mexican outfit was invited to open for the legendary frontman, leading to an ongoing friendship and a promise to one day record together. The decision to record the duet in Spanish was a natural one with Iggy Pop having lived in Mexico for several years and fluent in the language.
‘A Raw Youth,’ is the band’s third album and as Teri has explained, the new release was inspired by “the recurrent conflict between minorities (the raw youths) and society: The oppressor and the oppressed.” The album was recorded in the RLP (The Disaster Portable Morgue Unit) studies in El Paso with producer Omar Rodriguez-Lopez.
