As if this year hasn’t already promised us enough new good music – word came out today (January 21) that old Punk Rock icon Iggy Pop has partnered up with current Rock icon Joshua Homme. The two secretly teamed up to record a collaborative album which has been titled, Post Pop Depression and is set to be released March 18th via Loma Vista Records.
The news was officially revealed today via the New York Times and while no songs have been released, we do know that it’s a 9-song album, as well as they are set to make their debut performance tonight on Late Night with Stephen Colbert.
The duo is set to be joined by Queens of the Stone Age / Dead Weather member Dean Fertita who also plays guitars and keyboards on Post Pop Depression. Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders also plays on the record, though it is unknown if he’ll be performing with the group tonight.
In the NY Times article, Pop and Homme reveal that they will be taking the album on the road though they are specifically looking for “venues, not cities”. It is said that they’ll be joined by QotSA’s Troy Van Leeuwen and former Chavez / Zwan member Matt Sweeney.
