TAPING SETLIST

Iggy Pop Taping Setlist

At 68 years old and with 16 other albums under his belt, music veteran Iggy Pop is still making history. The godfather of punk took the Austin City Limits stage for his inaugural appearance on the show just days before the release of Post Pop Depression, about which New York Magazine raves, “There exist nobody on Earth quite like Iggy Pop, and his great new album is further proof.”

Conceived in partnership with Queens of the Stone Age leader Josh Homme, a two-time ACL veteran who also produced the album, Post Pop Depression was recorded in secret in Palm Desert, CA with a vibe described as “Detroit meets Palm Desert by way of old Berlin.”

Bringing the new songs to life alongside classic spanning Iggy’s storied career, Iggy is joined by Homme and the powerhouse band that recorded PPD, including Homme’s QOTSA bandmate and Dead Weather-man Dean Fertita and Arctic Monkeys’ Matt Helders, and fleshed out with touring members Troy Van Leeuwen (QOTSA) and Matt Sweeney (Chavez, Bonnie Prince Billy).

 

The New York Times says, “Post Pop Depression…picks up where Lust For Life left off… The lyrics reflect on memories, hint at characters and offer advice and confessions; they can be hard-nosed, remorseful, flippant, combative or philosophical.”
