Josh Homme and Iggy Pop Record Album Together

Josh Homme and Iggy Pop have collaborated on an album to be released in March.

Pop talked of the album in an interview to the New York Times, referring to the album by name ‘Post Pop Depression’.

As well as Homme and Pop Matt Helders from Arctic Monkeys has contributed drums to the album with Queens of the Stone Age’s Dean Fertita on keyboards.

Pop said the album was recorded in a two session at Joshua Tree and then a further seven days LA’s Pink Duck studios.

“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.”

Homme and Pop will perform live shows to promote the album from March, suggesting a SXSW showcase is a possibility. Both Pop and Homme are frequent flyers of SXSW.
