Naturally the title of the album is Free – the man’s got to eat. Seriously, look how skinny the legendary punk godfather is!
The 10-track album is set to hit on September 6, and is the first album from Mr Pop since 2016’s Post Pop Depression.
This new release is promising quite a different sound, described as “sombre and contemplative” by Iggy himself.
“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.”
We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait.
