Post Pop Depression - Iggy Pop
Loma Vista Recordings
Produced by Josh Hommes
Released 18th March 2016
It's been four years since Iggy Pop's last outing and this is indeed a welcome return (isn't always with him). I read somewhere that this is possibly his last album ever! Seriously! If it is, he certainly left the best to last!
It will be the 17th Studio album from Iggy Pop and for it he's teamed up with Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal and Them Crooked Vultures fame. Also featuring on the album is Artic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders and Dean Fertita also of Queens of the Stone Age.
Work on the album began last year after Iggy had sent Homme a text (in 2014 when they began discussing the possibilty of writing together) and it had pretty much been a secret until news filtered out early this year. There's a good interview with Stephen Colbert where they talk about it and get to play a couple of songs from the album.

Also worth checking out is the latest Mojo Magazine that has Iggy and Josh on the front cover and contains a superb interviews with the both of them.
On first listen to the album I thought vocally Iggy sounded very David Bowie like in places. Maybe it's just me that hears that! In a way it's maybe not so surprising considering Iggy's link to Bowie via his albums The Idiot and Lust for Life.
There will be a tour to promote the album and you can check out the dates and other information here on the WEBSITE.
