Iggy and The Stooges have completed work on their new album which will carry the title ‘Ready To Die‘, according to Hitfix.
The band’s first studio album in six years – when ‘The Weirdness‘ arrived in 2007 – has been mixed by Ed Cherney, who describes it as:
“Old-time Stooges. It’s raw. They’re great songs, but not necessarily big choruses. They’re the Antichrist of anthems,” and added that Iggy’s lyrics show he, ‘Knows what he wants to say. He’s watching the world around him’.
On production duties is James Williamson, who is partaking in his first Stooges album since 1973 after rejoining the band in the wake of Ron Asheton‘s death in 2009. Williamson manned the production desk in San Francisco’s Fantasy Studios, though Iggy Pop recorded his vocals in Miami.
According to reports, two of the tracks slated for inclusion on the Stooges record are ‘I Got a Job But It Don’t Pay Shit‘ and ‘Gun‘.
