Following on from the news that Iggy Pop has teamed up with Josh Homme for his latest album ‘Post Pop Depression‘, the band have now shared the first proper single from the record. Check out ‘Break Into Your Heart‘ below.
“I wanted to be free,” says Iggy of the inspiration between the partnership. “To be free, I needed to forget. To forget, I needed music. Josh had that in him, so I set out to provoke an encounter-first with a carefully worded text, followed by a deluge of writings all about me. No composer wants to write about nothing. He got revved up and we had a great big rumble in the desert USA.”
‘Break Into Your Heart’ follows on from the first taste of ‘Gardenia‘ that saw the band perform in public for the very time time on the The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
The band, which also includes Arctic Monkeys‘ Matt Helders on drums, is looking to undertake a small tour to celebrate the album’s release with Josh noting, “There won’t be hardly any shows, and they won’t be in big places, and you won’t be able to get a ticket. So almost everyone won’t see it. It will be like trying to catch smoke in your hands. And that makes it even better. It will be special, and it will be over in the blink of an eye.”
‘Post Pop Depression’ is out March 18th.
