Superstar Iggy Pop last released music in 2012 with Après, an album that was made up of mostly French covers, and was initally rejected by Virgin EMI Records. Now, four years later, Iggy Pop has announced the release of a brand new studio album called Post Pop Depression. It will be his seventeenth studio album to date.
The album is produced by Josh Homme, and was secretly recorded along with Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age and Arctic Monkeys’ Matt Helders, and is said to be an attempt to pick up from where Iggy Pop left off with his 1977 albums, The Idiot and Lust For Life. As an initial taste for the release on March 18, a new track has been dropped called “Gardenia”.
