The Stooges: New Album

Iggy and the Stooges are ready to rock a new generation's ears off. The band's The Weirdness hits stores March 20 from Virgin Records. The effort's the band's first studio effort since 1973's Raw Power, and was recorded this fall with original members singer Iggy Pop, Ron Asheton and drummer Scott Asheton, while calling up Minutemen bassist Mike Watt to round out the lineup.

The disc will feature 16 songs and some of the titles include "Trollin'," "ATM," "You Can't Have Friends," "My Idea Of Fun," "Greedy Awful People" and "Free And Freaky." The latter features a guest appearance from Raconteurs co-frontman Brendan Benson.

"At times, [the songs have] a lot going for the fences," Pop cryptically told "But there's a great deal of structure and attention to detail. We were very prepared, and we always have been any time we stepped into a studio. Even the song 'L.A. Blues,' the last cut on Fun House, was pretty much exactly what you would have heard if you'd seen us live the week before we recorded it."

The band will tour this spring and are making an appearance at the increasingly ubiquitous South By Southwest in March.
