Lust for Life is Iggy Pop's second solo album from 1977. Like The Idiot , he recorded it with David Bowie after his “Station to Station” tour in the Hansa recording studios in Berlin .

Style and backgrounds

After The Idiot , which was very much influenced by Bowie, Lust for Life is more reminiscent of Iggy Pop in his Stooges times. It has a more aggressive sound than its previous album, which was more reflective and also had a touch of jazz. David Bowie takes on the same role here as in The Idiot , namely that of pianist and producer. His influence can be heard much less than with The Idiot .

The album contains two of Pop's most famous pieces, The Passenger and Lust for Life , and is considered by many to be Pop's best work of his solo career. Lust for Life was later used in the film Trainspotting - New Heroes .

The album was produced by Iggy Pop, David Bowie and the sound engineer Colin Thurston under the pseudonym "Bewlay Bros.", named after The Bewlay Brothers from Bowie's LP Hunky Dory .
