“This house is as slick as senator’s statement” croons Iggy Pop in the opening lines of Sunday, one of the standout tracks of his new album Post Pop Depression.
Watch the great performance below:
Post Pop Depression, released in March, earned Pop his first glimpse of the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Charts — and has received rave reviews from pretty much everybody.
In related news, Jack White’s Third Man Records publishing off-shoot Third Man Books announced a new Iggy Pop book entitled TOTAL CHAOS: The Story of The Stooges / As Told By Iggy Pop, for release in the fall.
Details about the book, from Third Man Books’ site:
Author Jeff Gold and contributor Johan Kugelberg, noted music historians and collectors, spent two days with Pop at his Miami home, sharing with him their extensive Stooges collection and interviewing the legendary singer. Pop’s candid, bare-all responses left them with the almost unbelievable tale of the band he founded-the alternately tragic and triumphant story of a group who rose from youth, fell prey to drugs, alcohol, and music biz realities, collapsed and nearly 30 years later reformed, recording and touring to great acclaim. In 2010 The Stooges, credited with having invented punk rock, were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Their continuing influence can be felt today in the shape and sound of rock-n-roll music.
Pop’s special one-time-only tour in support of the Post Pop Depression record is on now — check the remaining dates below.
