Iggy Pop’s Collaboration With Josh Homme
Iggy Pop and Queens of the Stone Age singer Josh Homme confirmed yesterday to the home audience of “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” that they’ve made an album together!
March 18 will see the release of “Post Pop Depression” (Rekords Rekords / Loma Vista / Caroline), the seventeenth Iggy Pop album.
“Post Pop Depression” is now available for pre-order via iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and the Iggy Pop webstore, with all pre-orders immediately receiving “Gardenia”, debuted by Iggy, Joshua and crew on the “Late Show”. “Gardenia” is also available on all streaming platforms.
“I wanted to be free,” recalls Iggy of the earliest germ of the partnership with Homme that culminated in “Post Pop Depression”. “To be free, I needed to forget. To forget, I needed music. Josh had that in him, so I set out to provoke an encounter — first with a carefully worded text, followed by a deluge of writings all about me. No composer wants to write about nothing. He got revved up and we had a great big rumble in the desert USA.”
“This was to go where neither of us had gone before,” adds Homme. “That was the agreement. And to go all the way.”
“Post Pop Depression” track listing:
01. Break Into Your Heart
