New Values is the third solo studio album by Iggy Pop
and his first record since The Stooges' Fun House and post-Stooges Kill
City without any involvement from David Bowie. It was released in 1979,
featuring "I'm Bored" and "Five Foot One". The track "Don't Look Down"
was covered by David Bowie on his 1984 Tonight album. The album is
dotted with synthesizer patches and electronic percussion and shows how
Iggy evolved as a songwriter. The true pop spirit can be found in songs
like "How Do Ya Fix a Broken Part", and "Angel", complete with slower
tempos and female vocalists. Other famous musicians on the album were
Klaus Krüger, who'd previously worked with Tangerine Dream, on drums,
former Stooge James Williamson as guitarist, and multi-instrumentalist
