It's been revealed that IGGY POP and QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE and EAGLES OF DEATH METAL mainman Josh Homme have been collaborating on a new album.
Announced unexpectedly during an appearance on TVs The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Post Pop Depression was recorded in seclusion with a line-up assembled by Homme featuring his QOTSA bandmate and DEAD WEATHER guitarist Dean Fertita and ARCTIC MONKEYS drummer Matt Helders.
"I wanted to be free," says Iggy. "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 is released on 18 March on Rekords Rekords through Caroline International. It's available to pre-order as a download now on iTunes, with the single 'Gardenia' available immediately, or on vinyl and CD from Iggy's webstore.
