Iggy Pop, Fiona Apple, Chrissie Hynde, and others will appear on a new Mose Allison tribute album.

Allison was an iconic jazz and blues musician who had hits in the '50s and '60s.

He died back in 2016, and Allison's daughter Amy Allison has helped to put together a new tribute album through Fat Possum.

Iggy Pop's contribution to the tribute album is a version of "If You're Going To The City" - check it out below.

Other contributions on the record include Taj Mahal, Robbie Fulks, Jackson Browne, The Tippo Allstars feat. Fiona Apple, Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite, Chrissie Hynde, Bonnie Raitt, Loudon Wainwright III, Richard Thompson, Peter Case, Dave Alvin and Phil Alvin, Anything Mose!, Frank Black, and Amy Allison with Elvis Costello.

Pixies' vocalist Frank Black says of the tribute album, "I'm so pleased Amy (Allison) has asked me to participate in this project of her father's music. What can I say? Both musically and lyrically Mose is more grounded than most, and, at the same time, existentially beyond everything else out there."

He adds, ""Numbers On Paper" is a relevant song to humanity at whatever point in the time space continuum, or 'spime' as Mose says, that you want to place that song."
