Iggy Pop's New Song Sounds Nothing Like What You'd Expect [LISTEN]

Iggy Pop will release a new album entitled Free on September 6 via Loma Vista.  And based on the release of the first single - it appears we're getting an ambient jazz record from the punk-rock provocateur. 


The album is a follow up to 2016’s Post Pop Depression, which the 72-year-old previously hinted would be his final record.


Here’s Iggy on the new 10-track LP:

This is an album in which other artists speak for me, but I lend my voice…

By the end of the tours following Post Pop Depression, I felt sure that I had rid myself of the problem of chronic insecurity that had dogged my life and career for too long.

But I also felt drained. And I felt like I wanted to put on shades, turn my back, and walk away. I wanted to be free. I know that’s an illusion, and that freedom is only something you feel, but I have lived my life thus far in the belief that that feeling is all that is worth pursuing; all that you need – not happiness or love necessarily, but the feeling of being free.

So this album just kind of happened to me, and I let it happen.
