Iggy and the Stooges – New album Ready to Die
The new album from Iggy and the Stooges is called Ready to Die, and will be released 40 years after the immortal proto-punk masterpiece Raw Power.
Ready to die, the new album, is the result of the reunion of Iggy Pop with guitarist James Williamson and drummer Scott Asheton, the original band members. Besides them, Mike Watt on bass takes the place of Ron Asheton, who died in 2009.
The next album of Iggy and the Stooges will be released on April 30th via Fat Possum. Before that you can hear Burn, the first song released from the album. Burn is rock, Iggy Pop showing excellent physical shape and noise guitars. The track, which will feature on the band’s forthcoming new album Ready To Die, is currently streaming on Soundcloud. In addition to Burn , Ready to Die will include Job, Fri & Money and the title track Ready To Die . The album was produced by guitarist Williamson at Fantasy Studios in San Francisco, though Iggy Pop recorded his vocals in Miami.
Iggy explains thus, the return to the records: ‘My motivation in making any record with the group at this point is no longer personal. It’s just a pig-headed fucking thing I have that a real fucking group when they’re an older group, they also make fucking records. They don’t just go and twiddle around on stage to make a bunch of fucking money…’.
It is the first work of Iggy Pop with the Stooges since The Weirdness, from 2007, in halftime he released a solo album in 2012, called Après.
