POP STARS WITH STOOGES AGAIN
Iggy Pop has recorded with original Iggy And The Stooges bandmates RON and SCOTT ASHETON for four songs on his latest album, 'SKULL RING', due for release on September 30.


The tracks mark the first time that the band have written new songs together for 30 years. Album opener 'Little Electric Chair' joins 'Skull Rings', 'Loser' and 'Dead Rock Star', all of which were written and recorded by the Iggy And The Stooges at Miami's Hit Factory Criteria Studios.


The album will also feature Iggy Pop's collaborations with Green Day on 'Private Hell' and 'Supermarket', and as previously reported on NME.COM, 'Little Know It All' with Peaches and 'Motor Inn' featuring Iggy Pop.


The other six songs feature Iggy Pop's band The Trolls and a solo acoustic number performed by the singer called 'Til Wrong Feels Right', based on an old blues tune by Mississippi Fred McDowell.


The release of 'Skull Ring' follows the first show by Iggy And The Stooges and Sonic Youth in more than 25 years at California's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on April 27. The group will play two more summer shows at Wantagh, New York's Jones Beach Amphitheater on August 9 and a Detroit homecoming gig at the Clarkston DTE Energy Music Theater on August 14, with support from Iggy Pop. Iggy And The Stooges and The Trolls will our Europe later this year.
