Iggy Pop gave another indication his latest album could be his last.
On the season finale of the BBC’s The Graham Norton Show, Iggy said he will step back from music “at some point,” adding that “another album would be a big undertaking for an old git like [himself]!”
Weeks before his album came out, the 69-year-old had stated his energy was limited, which he felt was key in the process of making new music.
Iggy Pop released Post Pop Depression–his collaboration with Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age–back in February to much acclaim from critics and fans. It debuted at #17 on the Billboard US Top 200–his highest charting album since 1977’s The Idiot (produced by David Bowie) which peaked at #72.
It also ends up Iggy Pop is quite the aficionado on different chairs. Who would’ve thought? It started back when he finally had a solid living situation.
