Some secrets are worth keeping. At least until you can’t keep them any longer, which seems to be the point Josh Homme (of Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal) and Iggy Pop (as in “the” Iggy Pop) reached earlier Thursday when they told The New York Times they’ve recorded a nine track album together and will be touring the material as well.

The album, with the poignant title Post Pop Depression, was an idea spurred on by a text message from Pop to Homme, which Homme described to the Times as “It basically said, ‘Hey, it would be great if we got together and maybe write something sometime — Iggy.’” Post Pop Depression is a bit of an exercise for the two musicians. For Homme, it’s a cathartic way to cope with the terrorist attack his part-time band Eagles of Death Metal were at the hands of when they performed in Paris at the Bataclan. For Pop, it’s a personal test to see if he still knows how to use what he’s got.

The musicians paid for the recording of the album themselves, without the backing of a record label, and believe that, while a lot of it was made for themselves, that the material was meant to be heard by others. Pop told the Times “We paid for whatever ourselves…but it was made to be heard — not to be some quirky thing that we did with our own money, ha-ha.” If you’re lucky, some fans will be able to see the creation and energy of these two legends when the impromptu and passionate band tours their new material after the album drops March 18. “There won’t be hardly any shows, and they won’t be in big places, and you won’t be able to get a ticket,” said Homme. “So almost everyone won’t see it. It will be like trying to catch smoke in your hands. And that makes it even better. It will be special, and it will be over in the blink of an eye.”

Better not blink.
