Iggy Pop has unveiled “Sunday,” another new track off his Post Pop Depression, his surprise collaborative album with Josh Homme. The winding, six-minute track navigates around a slithering bass line and scorching guitar stabs as Pop croons, “This house is as slick as a senator’s statement / This job is a masquerade of recreation.” Later on the cut, female vocalists join Pop for the choruses before guitar solos guide Pop to the outro. Then, out of the long “Sunday” fade-out, the track blossoms a minute-long orchestral interlude.
“Sunday” follows previous Post Pop Depression singles “Gardenia” and “Break Into Your Heart.” “I proposed [the idea] to him by text from my flip-phone,” Pop recently said of the Homme collaboration on The Late Show. “I just said, ‘I thought maybe we could write something and record it. I didn’t want it to put it in a box, and neither did he.”
Post Pop Depression is out March 18th. Pop and Homme embark on a six-week-long trek in support of their new LP March 28th at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre.
