Iggy and the Stooges have just unveiled “Burn,” the first full taste of the all-new studio album, Ready To Die, out April 30 on Fat Possum.

The follow-up to the first record ever to bear the Iggy and the Stooges logo-the immortal 1973 proto-punk masterpiece Raw Power–Ready To Die finds Iggy Pop, guitarist James Williamson and drummer Scott “Rock Action” Asheton reunited for a full album of all-new material for the first time in 40 years, with Mike Watt filling in for the late Ron Asheton on bass. “Burn” opens the record in suitable fashion, doing the legacy of its predecessor proud with guitar pyrotechnics recalling those halcyon opening salvos of “Search & Destroy,” a sublime vocal paean to the goddess of beauty, and a relentless rhythmic thud that anchors and propels the proceedings.
“Burn” can be heard:
