Listen To Iggy Pop & Josh’s Homme’s New Song “Break Into Your Heart”

Josh Homme and Iggy Pop will release a collaboration titled Post Pop Depression on March 18th. Listen to a new track from the album titled “Break Into Your Heart” below.

Josh Homme and Iggy Pop will release a collaboration titled Post Pop Depression on March 18th. “We paid for whatever ourselves,” Pop told the New York Times. “But it was made to be heard — not to be some quirky thing that we did with our own money.”

The Stooges singer said Homme “took me to a place I’d never been,” while the Queens of the Stone Age mastermind added: “This was to go where neither of us had gone before. That was the agreement. And to go all the way.”

“There won’t be hardly any shows, and they won’t be in big places, and you won’t be able to get a ticket,” Homme said. “It will be like trying to catch smoke in your hands. And that makes it even better. It will be special, and it will be over in the blink of an eye.”

Listen to “Gardenia” below.

Tracklist:
Break Into Your Heart

Josh Homme, Mark Lanegan & Iggy Pop Are In A New Silent Film

Gutterdämmerung seems to be a portmanteau of the English “gutter” and the German “götterdämmerung” (or just an Anglicization of the word), which means roughly means “a collapse (as of a society or regime) marked by catastrophic violence and disorder.” The word is a German translation of the Old Norse ” Ragnarök” a prophetic concept in Norse mythology which foretells a large and all-consuming battle between deities which would to extravagent chaos and disarray, as dramatized in Richard Wagner’s opera series, also entitled “Götterdämmerung.” Enough background.

Importantly, there is a spooky awesome independent film in the works from the Belgian-Swedish visual artist Bjorn Tagemose, entitled “Gutterdämmerung.” A tribute to 1920’s Hollywood (the era’s horror genre to be specific), the tagline is the “loudest silent movie on Earth.” This may not be a complete exaggeration. The film will be “silent”, if you exclude the dark, heavy soundtrack that will be accommodate the film at all points. Instead of the ragtime piano or organs prevalent in old-timey film, the website says the soundtrack is performed by  “a live rock band of rock express the emotions and action whilst special effects from the film explode to life all around the audience.” Though exact artistic details of the soundtrack have not been released, several figures from alternative rock, metal and punk are starring in the film – which may give some hints to what the soundtrack will sound like. So far, the film’s cast has been announced as Queens of the Stone Age’s frontman Josh Homme (listed as Joshua Homme), Motorhead’s Lemmy, solo artist and ex-Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegen, famed Black Flag singer and inspiration speaker/comedian combo Henry Rollins, Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes, Slayer’s Tom Araya, solo artist Grace Jones and the one and only Iggy Pop.

The website is hosting a contest for tickets and merchandise to guess the two remaining co-stars. The film is expected to be released sometime in 2016. The film’s Facebook page lists the project as a “concert tour”…perhaps all the collaborating musicians will go on tour together to promote the project? We’ll have to see.

Watch a promotional trailer for the film below:

Last week, KEXP posted articles spotlighting the performers for Raw Power KEXP, Below are excerpts from their short interviews with Mike McCready (Pearl Jam/Mad Season), Mark Arm (Mudhoney), Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees/Mad Season), and Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses/Velvet Revolver).

Mike McCready:

“I first discovered Iggy and the Stooges around 1982 when I was at a party in the U District that members of Shadow, Green River, and Overlord were all at.

I was aware of Iggy because of my love of the New York Dolls and Alice Cooper. That party was the first time I heard the first side of Raw Power. Its angry guitars and awesome vocals immediately caught my attention. The energy was undeniable as was the feeling of freedom in their sound.”

Mark Arm:

“I got into The Stooges shortly after I immersed myself in punk rock. I was trying to figure out where this exciting new music came from and all roads led back to The Stooges.”

Duff McKagan:

“In 1979, Kim Warnick of The Fastbacks turned me onto The Stooges. A few nights later, I had a dream I was Iggy, and I was playing a show in a church basement… rolling around in broken glass and totally immersed in the moment of noise and chaos. I still reference that dream before gigs to this day.

Barrett Martin:

“I discovered the Stooges when I was a kid in the ‘70s because my aunt (the rock & roll aunt everyone should have) was playing me records by The Who, The Rolling Stones, and Elton John, and The Stooges got mixed in there, too. I liked the rawness of The Stooges the best, although no one called it punk rock back then, it was too early for that term.”
