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.
