Iggy Pop Joins Dr. Lonnie Smith on Cover of Donovan’s ‘Sunshine Superman’

    Iggy Pop and Hammond B-3 organ legend Dr. Lonnie Smith have joined forces for a cover of Donovan’s 1966 hit ‘Sunshine Superman’. The track is taken from Smith’s upcoming album Breathe, which comes out March 26 via Blue Note. Listen to their rendition of ‘Sunshine Superman’ below.

    Produced by Don Was, the eight-track Breathe is a companion album to Smith’s 2018 LP All in My Mind. Six of the songs were recorded during Smith’s 75th birthday run at the Jazz Standard in NYC in 2017, the same week he recorded All in My Mind. ‘Sunshine Superman’ is one of two additional studio tracks, the second of which, a cover of Timmy Thomas’ ‘Why Can’t We Live Together’, also features Iggy Pop.
