Annie Clark, better known as St. Vincent, has a Beats 1 radio show called "Mixtape Delivery Service," where she creates mixtapes based on notes from fans. Tonight, Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme will be a guest on the show and he has requested that Clark make him an Iggy Pop mixtape.
Iggy Pop is due to release Post Pop Depression on Friday via Loma Vista Recordings, and it was produced by Homme. Currently, Pop fans can listen to the entire album on NPR. Iggy also announced that this may be his last album, and NPR says about the new record, "it's been an introspective time for the rock giant. That might be part of why Pop's new album — a collaboration with Josh Homme — bears the title Post Pop Depression. Not that the album itself is quite as ominous as its name. Throughout its nine songs, Pop pipes in his most unctuous croon, a work of nature that's only become more monumental as it's eroded over the decades. But with Homme's acumen as the architect of Queens Of The Stone Age stirred into the mix, there's decadent ecstasy to the album that's as far from glum as you can get."
St. Vincent released her eponymous fourth album in 2014. Her most recent new music, a song entitled "Teenage Talk," premiered on the HBO series Girls in May 2015. There has been no announcement about any new music coming from her any time soon, and she is not currently on tour.For more on St. Vincent, check out:
