Iggy Pop has been recording with mystery collaborators.

He revealed he has returned to the recording studio since he released his Post Pop Depression album in March.

Pop claims he recorded five new tracks, all of which appear to be collaborations with other artists.

“I’ve made five recordings since then,” he told Entertainment Weekly.

“But they were all recordings not where I’m about, ‘Hey, I’ve got something to say!’ No, it was just, people called me up and said, ‘Do you want to do a vocal with me, about this, under this circumstance?’ More like guesting.”

He added: “I would prefer to do that for a while. You know, there are people I like. I like the people I’ve recorded with — I can’t tell you who they are! — very much.”

He is currently promoting Gimme Danger, a documentary about The Stooges directed by Jim Jarmusch. Watch the trailer below.

The December 2016 issue of Uncut is now on sale in the UK – featuring our cover story on Pink Floyd, plus a free CD compiled by Lambchop’s Kurt Wagner that includes tracks by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Sleaford Mods, Yo La Tengo, Can.
