Iggy Pop Details Post Pop Depression, Shares

Last night, Iggy Pop was the musical guest on  “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.” He performed his new single “Gardenia” from his upcoming album Post Pop Depression, alongside the record’s producer, Josh Homme (of Queens of the Stone Age and Eagles of Death Metal). They also sat down with Colbert to discuss how they came together. 

Speaking about shacking up with Iggy in Joshua Tree, Homme says, “I’m such a huge fan of Iggy, and to see him in a kimono is … it’s just enough to leave something to the imagination. And I’ve got a really good imagination.” Iggy Pop and Josh Homme perform a song from their forthcoming album “Post Pop Depression.”

The album was produced by Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age/Eagles of Death Metal)

They didn’t reveal much about what the record will sound like, however, Homme did indicate that it will pick up where Iggy Pop’s 1977 album Lust For Life left off. The Queens of the Stone Age frontman also described the first time he and the band jammed with Iggy: “We get to ‘Lust for Life,’ we’re all sweating and dancing around with this moronic look on our faces. Iggy looked over at me and [winked]…with Iggy, compliments are not forthcoming. It was a real moment.”

Discussing the albums lyrical themes Pop said: “What happens after your years of service? And where is the honour?In American life, because it’s so hypercompetitive, what happens when you’re finally useless to everyone except hopefully not yourself? What happens then? And can you continue to be of use to yourself? I had a kind of character in mind. It was sort of a cross between myself and a military veteran.”

Homme and Pop plan to tour the record with Fertita and Helders, alongside QOTSA’s Troy Van Leeuwen and Chavez’s Matt Sweeney.
