Yesterday Iggy Pop confirmed that he and Josh Homme (Queens of the Stoneage frontman) had recored an album together, and today we have the first single from the project, "Gardenia."
The album itself, Post Pop Depression, is billed as a Pop solo album with Homme on production duties. QOTSA's Dean Fertita lends a hand playing guitar and keyboards while Arctic Monkey's drummer Matt Helders also had input into the recording process.
"Gardenia" sounds very much like a sludging QOTSA number with Pop's recognisable drawl replacing Homme's understated vocals. It's a pairing that's both familiar and original, leading this LP to be one of the most anticipated releases this year.
Post Pop Depression will be available March 18.
