Iggy Pop, along with being a rock icon, is known for his steadfast and energetic approach to his music, and those resilient qualities are exemplified in the documentary American Valhalla which hits DVD March 9.
The documentary centers on the collaboration between Pop and Queens of the Stone Age frontman Joshua Homme over Pop’s acclaimed 2016 album Post Pop Depression. The project spotlight’s the pair’s songwriting sessions, recording process and subsequent Post Pop Depression tour (their final show took place at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Anthony Bourdain is also featured in the 81-minute documentary to contribute to the discussions (Bourdain, a lifelong Stooges fan, had Pop on his program Parts Unknown).
“As we got to know each other, you blew my mind,” said Homme to Pop in the documentary. “You really came with such an open mind and saying, ‘Yeah, I know what I’ve done but here to . . . look forward.”
American Valhalla is being released via Eagle Rock Entertainment.
