Good news for all you Iggy Pop fans: His new album, Post Pop Depression, is now available for streaming on NPR ahead of its release next week. The project is in collaboration with Queens of the Stone Age/Eagles of Death Metal's Josh Homme.

The nine-track album also feature Queens of the Stone Age’s Troy Van Leeuwen, QotSA/the Dead Weather's Dean Fertita and Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders—which makes Iggy's reported retirement more of a celebration than a somber one.

In an interview with Beats 1's Matt Wilkinson last month, the rock star stated Post Pop Depression may be his final one: "I feel like I'm closing up after this." He continued, "To really make a real album, you really have to put everything into it. The energy's more limited now. I may be surprised."
