It’s his first new record since 2016’s ‘Post Pop Depression’.

Today, Iggy Pop has confirmed that his new record, ‘Free’, will be released on the 6th September! The follow-up to 2016’s ‘Post Pop Depression’, the LP sees Iggy delve into a different side of his musical being, creating a uniquely contemplative new album charting his feelings after his last album tour.

“This is an album in which other artists speak for me, but I lend my voice…” Iggy explains. “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.”
