Just a week after Iggy Pop and Josh Homme revealed they had secretly recorded an album together, the pair have unveiled “Break Into Your Heart,” another new track from their upcoming Post Pop Depression.
Speaking previously about their collaboration, Homme admitted Pop’s solo LPs The Idiot and Lust for Life inspired him to break from Kyuss, and on the smoky, enchanting “Break Into Your Heart,” the duo tap into that vintage Pop sound, recalling Berlin-era classics like “Baby” and “Dum Dum Boys.” “Break Into Your Heart” debuted on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show, and Homme and Pop stopped by to discuss the Post Pop Depression opening track.
“I think on a very base level, if you said, ‘Okay, we’re all making an Iggy Pop record together, we’re his band,’ you might quickly assume something, and I think that song sort of says, ‘No, whatever you thought it was, it’s not,” Homme told Lowe. “It sets a really good tone.” Homme added that the track was among the first he, Pop, Dead Weather bassist Dean Fertita and Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders worked on together.
“Break Into Your Heart” follows Pop’s “Gardenia,” which they debuted on Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Thursday. Post Pop Depression is out March 18th.
