Andreas Neumann directed the video that’s shot in a muggy landscape of tropical Miami — where Pop now resides — and the harsh sprawl of Joshua Tree, where Homme was born and where Post Pop was recorded at Rancho De La Luna studio. The video peppers in early footage of band rehearsals as well as their first public performance at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles in the video.
Pop released Post Pop Depression in March via Loma Vista. Along with Homme, his backing band includes Dead Weather and Queens of the Stone Age guitarist Dean Fertita, and Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Pop spoke about the origins of “Sunday,” which began as a musing on “the isolation of the new economy,” until Homme offered a suggestion. “Josh said, ‘We’re writing about Iggy Pop, the working man’s musician. When he gets to Sunday, he’s black, blue and tired.’ He’d say something I could gnaw on. Then I had to figure out how to make it fit me.”
