Iggy Pop melder sin ankomst med super lineup

ROCK-IKONET IGGY POP UDGIVER ALBUM MED JOSH HOMME OG KOMMER TIL KØBENHAVN MED ET EKSKLUSIVT SHOW
 

Dette er minsandten BREAKING NEWS for rock-elskere. I den forgange weekend spredte nyheden sig som en steppebrand på nettet om, at NorthSide-aktuelle Iggy Pop udgiver et nyt album med titlen "Post Pop Depression". Og endnu bedre, så er albummet produceret af Queens Of The Stone Age frontmand Josh Homme og udgives desuden på Josh's eget label. Nyheden blev breaket, da Iggy Pop og Josh Homme med band debuterede med et helt nyt nummer "Gardenia" på amerikansk TV i torsdags.

Om projektet siger Iggy Pop: "A lot of geezers my age don’t work out of their comfort zone anymore because once you become legendary you don’t want people challenging you”... og den komfortzone fik Josh Homme rusket op i med det perfekte musikalske makkerskab til følge.

Udover Josh Homme, som kapelmester, vil bandet på denne tour bestå af en sand perlerække af musikere med Dean Fertita og Troy Van Leeuwen fra Queens Of The Stone Age, samt Matt Helders fra Arctic Monkeys og Matt Sweeney fra bandet Chavez. Publikum får både nye og gamle numre fra Iggy Pop's lange, alsidige og respektindgydende karriere. Det bliver på mange måder en ikonisk og uforglemmelig aften i Falconer Salen. Det understreges, at dette live setup kun vil kunne opleves på bandets meget korte albumlancerings-tour, som i Europa kun vil omfatte 7 udvalgte byer.

Udvalgte anmelder-citater om albummet:
“Post Pop Depression... picks up where Lust for Life left off… The lyrics reflect on memories, hint at characters and offer advice and confessions; they can be hard-nosed, remorseful, flippant, combative or philosophical.” — THE NEW YORK TIMES

“A slice of stratospheric punk-funk” — ROLLING STONE

“‘Gardenia’ has the same sort of mean, skeletal, machinelike groove that so many of those great old Iggy songs had… over this sort of spartan groove, he sounds awesome.” — STEREOGUM

“Iggy in finer form than ever and Homme’s distinctive driving guitar melodies firmly anchoring his florid vocals. Basically: it’s shit hot stuff and this album cannot come soon enough” — NOISEY

“Pop gave the song a relatively restrained and poignant performance. The single, from his wonderfully titled new album ’Post Pop Depression’, continues the bleak, grooving moods from his great David Bowie collaborations, and it's perhaps his catchiest new tune in a generation.” — THE LOS ANGELES TIMES

“Glorious… ’Gardenia’ itself feels like a callback to the glory days of new wave, with Iggy’s trademark low voice channeling the spirit of his dearly departed friend David Bowie. Homme provides backing vocals and typically excellent guitar work.” — PASTE


Albummet "Post Pop Depression" udkommer den 18. marts og kan forudbestilles via disse link:
