Iggy Pop Announces His New Album Made In The ‘Old-Fashioned Way’
As rockers age, some might consider retiring, but it seems like retiring is not an option for Iggy Pop. The 75-year-old musician recently chatted with Billboard to disclose the details of his new album and explained how it was produced in the ‘old-fashioned way.’
“I’m the guy with no shirt who rocks,” remarked Iggy, who is well-known for his shirtless stage performances and continued by addressing his new record deal. “Andrew Watt and Gold Tooth get that, and we made a record together the old-fashioned way.”
Speaking about the musicians who contributed to his album and how they matched his energy, Pop exclaimed, “The players are guys I’ve known since they were kids, and the music will beat the sh*t out of you. Have a great day.” The producer Andrew Watt chimed in and said, “This album was created to be played as loud as your stereo will go. Turn it up and hold on.”
Pop’s last studio record, ‘Free,’ was released in 2019 by another label company, Loma Vista. The rocker seemed excited about his new collaboration with Gold Tooth and Andrew Watt since it was apparent that Iggy wanted to embrace his roots with the new project.
Iggy Pop is not the only musician Watt has worked with, though. The producer had also collaborated with artists such as Pearl Jam, Post Malone, and Elton John. One of Andrew’s latest collaborations was with Ozzy Osbourne, as he produced the rocker’s latest album, ‘Patient Number 9.’
