Iggy Pop has announced a new album.

‘Free’ will be the first record from the "Godfather of Punk" since 2016’s ‘Post Pop Depression’, and will arrive on September 6 through Loma Vista/Caroline International.

Speaking of the new LP, the former Stooges frontman commented:

"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."

Listen to a teaser below, which features a guitarscape by Noveller and trumpets by Leron Thomas, both principal players on the record.

To outsiders, it often seems that any fresh faced group who ‘suddenly’ arrive on the scene with a bang, and subsequently reap the rewards their newfound status commands, have had it easy and somehow fluked their way out of obscurity. But before hit singles and worldwide tours, there often lies a story of hard graft, setbacks and intense frustration, making that eventual breakthrough taste even sweeter.
