Iggy Pop reveals all about new Stooges album
Iggy Pop has been writing songs with The Stooges for their first new album since 1973.

The as-yet-untitled album is due out next year, and will be produced by Steve Albini.

Of the songwriting process, Pop told Billboard: “All the same passions and problems are there. But the problems are in a more muted style. I'm still the show-off in the group that gets all the attention. Everyone has their role. It's pretty much the way it was in high school."

Speaking about the recording process, the singer added: "We experimented a lot. We're stubborn people. We could have just started out and in 10 minutes we would have sounded like us, but that would have been too easy. We'd have these get-togethers every two or three months for four or five days and bang out stuff. As time went on it started to sound more and more like us."

The band are due to play the Thurston Moore-curated Nightmare Before Christmas festival at Butlin's in Minehead over the weekend of December 8-10.
