Iconic punk singer-songwriter Iggy Pop recently announced his forthcoming studio album, Free, set for release on September 6th via Loma Vista.
The Godfather of Punk’s forthcoming LP marks his first new music since 2016’s Post Pop Depression, which was rumored to be the rocker’s final album. With the help of Leron Thomas and Noveller, Free is described as a “uniquely somber and contemplative” project.
On Thursday, Iggy released a new single, “Sonali”, which is set to appear on the new album. Listen to “Sonali” below:

Iggy Pop shared his thoughts on the new album. He explained,
This is an album in which other artists speak for me, but I lend my voice…
By the end of the tours following Post Pop Depression, I felt sure that I had rid myself of the problem of chronic insecurity that had dogged my life and career for too long.
But I also felt drained. And I felt like I wanted to put on shades, turn my back, and walk away. I wanted to be free. I know that’s an illusion, and that freedom is only something you feel, but I have lived my life thus far in the belief that that feeling is all that is worth pursuing; all that you need – not happiness or love necessarily, but the feeling of being free.
So this album just kind of happened to me, and I let it happen.
