“All I wanna do is tell Gardenia what to do tonight.”

“Gardenia” by Iggy Pop | By the time you read this, Iggy Pop’s surprise new single – with Queens of the Stone Age’s Joshua Homme and Dean Fertita, and the Arctic Monkeys‘ Matt Helder, on the band – is already two years old. A lot has likely been said about how this (and the rest of Post Pop Depression, which drops this March) was recorded in secret. Perhaps a lot more about how Bowie-esque it sounds, which has to be a coincidence. Maybe a bit about how the recording of the album has helped Homme deal with the aftermath of the Paris attacks where he was almost entangled in. Whatever. I’m late. I tweeted this out on Friday afternoon, but only listened to it properly on Friday night – particularly, the performance on The Late Show. This has grown on me. I properly like this. [NB]
