Iggy Pop has announced a new album. On September 6, he’ll release Free via Loma Vista. The first track he’s released is titled “Free,” and you can hear it below.
Iggy released a statement about the album. In a press release he says, “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.”
Free follows 2016’s Post Pop Depression.
