He added that the lyrics are "very timely", saying of Iggy Pop: "He knows what he wants to say. He's watching the world around him."
The album features the tracks "I Got A Job But It Don't Pay Shit" and "Gun". It was produced by the band's guitar player James Williamson at Fantasy Studios in San Francisco, though Iggy Pop recorded his vocals in Miami.
It marks the first Stooges album Williamson has played on since 1973's "Raw Power", after rejoining the band following Ron Asheton's death in 2009.
Last year Iggy Pop released a solo covers album, which featured renditions of tracks by the likes of Frank Sinatra, The Beatles and Edith Piaf.
