At 68 years old and with 16  albums under his belt, music veteran Iggy Pop is still making history. The godfather of punk took the Austin City Limits stage for his inaugural appearance on the show just days before the release of Post Pop Depression, There exist nobody on Earth quite like Iggy Pop, and his great new album is further proof.

Conceived in partnership with Queens of the Stone Age leader Josh Homme, a two-time ACL veteran who also produced the album, Post Pop Depression was recorded in secret in Palm Desert, CA with a vibe described as “Detroit meets Palm Desert by way of old Berlin.”

Bringing the new songs to life alongside classic spanning Iggy’s storied career, Iggy is joined by Homme and the powerhouse band that recorded Post Pop Depression , including Homme’s QOTSA bandmate and Dead Weather-man Dean Fertita and Arctic Monkeys’ Matt Helders, and fleshed out with touring members Troy Van Leeuwen (QOTSA) and Matt Sweeney (Chavez, Bonnie Prince Billy).

Post Pop Depression…picks up where Lust For Life left off… The lyrics reflect on memories, hint at characters and offer advice and confessions; they can be hard-nosed, remorseful, flippant, combative or philosophical.”
