Louder: British singer-songwriter Elvis Costello has released a new EP containing French versions of songs from his 2020 album Hey Clockface. Titled La Face de Pendule Ă  Coucou, the EP includes the track No Flag (en Français), sung by Iggy Pop.

When asked about the difficulties of singing in a language that's not his native tongue, Iggy Pop said: “There’s a uniqueness to the French language. No other language has vowels that sound like that. Learning a song that’s as quick as No Flag took a month of practice because my lips weren’t used to those combinations.

"I [worked on it] for 40 minutes a day for about five weeks. You don’t want to do too much work on it at once or it’s not fun anymore."
