"Post Pop Depression" is the seventeenth studio album by Iggy Pop, released on March 18, 2016, by Loma Vista Recordings. Produced by Josh Homme of QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, the album was recorded in secrecy and features contributions from QUEENS OF THE STONE AGEs Dean Fertita and ARCTIC MONKEYS drummer Matt Helders
Pop and Homme began working on the album in January 2015. Pop reached out to Homme by text message to ask if he was interested in writing music together. After they spoke by phone, Pop sent Homme some lyrics by mail, along with notes about Pop's time working with David Bowie. Three months later, Homme sent lyrics to Pop, and they agreed to work together on recording songs in a studio. They brought incomplete ideas as opposed to finished songs, so that they could work on them together. Pop described the album as discussing issues of what happens when your utility is at an end, and dealing with your legacy.
Consisting of nine songs, the album was recorded between January 12 and March 9, 2015 at Rancho De La Luna in Joshua Tree, California, over the course of two weeks, and another week at Pink Duck Studios in Burbank, California. Pop and Homme self-financed the album. Dean Fertita recorded guitar and keyboards, while Matt Helders recorded drum tracks. Homme stated that preparing Post Pop Depression was one thing that helped him cope with the aftermath of the November 2015 attack at the Bataclan.
The album was released on March 18, 2016, and Pop and Homme will embark on a short tour to support the album after its release (including two shows in Paris, France on May 15, 2016 at the Grand Rex and on August 26, 2016 at the "Rock en Seine" festival) In addition to Pop and Homme, the tour will include Fertita, Helders, Matt Sweeney playing bass guitar and Troy Van Leeuwen playing guitar.
Today's tune "Gardenia" is a song by American musician Iggy Pop. It was released as the lead single from his seventeenth studio album, "Post Pop Depression", on January 22, 2016. The song was premiered live on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on the day of the song's release.
