Iggy Pop Has Made Five New Recordings Since Supposed Farewell Album

Although Iggy Pop never explicitly billed Post Pop Depression, his recent album with Josh Homme, as a farewell album, he pretty heavily implied that it would be his last. But that doesn’t mean that there won’t be any new Iggy Pop music in the world, apparently. When Pop and director Jim Jarmusch caught up with Entertainment Weekly last week to promote the new Stooges doc Gimme Danger, the Stooges singer revealed that he’s featured on a few upcoming tracks by other artists.

“I’ve made five recordings since then,” he says. “But they were all recordings not where I’m about, ‘Hey, I’ve got something to say!’ No, it was just, people called me up and said, ‘Do you want to do a vocal with me, about this, under this circumstance?’ More like guesting. I would prefer to do that for a while. You know, there are people I like. I like the people I’ve recorded with — I can’t tell you who they are! — very much.”
