A tre anni dall’ultimo ‘Post Pop Depression’ l’intramontabile artista americano annuncia il nuovo ‘Free’ che sarà fuori il 6 settembre via Loma Vista. Il tutto è anticipato dalla title track. Due settimane dopo arriva ‘James Bond‘ a cui segue la bowiana ‘Sonali.
Iggy Pop racconta: “This is an album in which other artists speak for me, but I lend my voice. 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.
