Iggy Pop has teased the new Iggy and The Stooges new album in a joke video about "record label problems" which you can watch below.

The video starts with Iggy sat by a swimming pool on his phone complaining that he has "no artistic freedom" and that he's "loosing touch with the common man" before saying that he's going to quit his major label. It then switches to Iggy litter-picking in a park saying he's "got to get off this indie label" before a banner saying the new album will be released on (indie label) Fat Possum Records on April 30.

The band's new album, 'Ready To Die', features the tracks 'I Got A Job But It Don't Pay Shit' and 'Gun'. It was produced by the band's guitar player James Williamson at Fantasy Studios in San Francisco, though Iggy Pop recorded his vocals in Miami. It marks the first Stooges album Williamson has played on since 1973's 'Raw Power', after rejoining the band following Ron Asheton's death in 2009.

Last year Iggy Pop released a solo covers album, which featured renditions of tracks by the likes of Frank Sinatra, The Beatles and Edith Piaf. The album followed his 2009 effort 'Préliminaires'.
