Iggy and the Stooges Unveil New Track 'Burn'

Iggy and the Stooges Unveil New Track 'Burn' -

Iggy and the Stooges are back and they have a new single entitled 'Burn.'

The new track, which will feature on the band's forthcoming album 'Ready To Die,' is currently available to stream via Soundcloud.

Explaining his decision to take Iggy And The Stooges back into the studio in 2013, Iggy said:

"My motivation in making any record with the group at this point is no longer personal. It's just a pig-headed fucking thing I have that a real fucking group when they're an older group, they also make fucking records. They don't just go and twiddle around on stage to make a bunch of fucking money...".

'Ready To Die' will be the band's first studio effort since 2007's 'The Weirdness' and the first album of fresh material featuring James Williamson and Scott Asheton since 1973's 'Raw Power.'

Engineer Mike Cherney says of the album,

"It's old-time Stooges. It's raw. They're great songs, but not necessarily big choruses. They're the anti-christ of anthems." Cherney promises "very timely" lyrics, evidenced by song titles like 'I Got A Job But It Don't Pay Shit' and 'Gun'.

Iggy and the Stooges 'Ready To Die' will hit stores on April 30 via Fat Possum Records
