Ready to Die is the fifth and final studio album by American rock band Iggy and the Stooges. The album was released on April 30, 2013, by Fat Possum Records. The album debuted at number 96 on the Billboard 200 chart. On February 25, 2013, Iggy Pop announced that The Stooges' fifth album Ready to Die would be released on April 30, 2013. In July 2013, in an interview with Guitar World, Iggy Pop spoke about the song titled "DD's", saying: "It's funny that that song gets a lot of attention

Ready to Die arrives with none of the heady expectations of The Weirdness, the 2007 comeback that found Iggy Pop and the Asheton Brothers, aided by the sturdy Mike Watt, attempting to re-create some of the madness of Funhouse. For a variety of reasons it didn't work, but it wasn't so much an embarrassment as it was, well, weirdness, from a band weighed down more by its own ongoing internal tensions than its legacy. Because Ready to Die feels like a Stooges album in all the right ways, throwing out the halting, lurching hard murk of The Weirdness in favor of successive blasts of sleaze, intermittently interrupted by the occasional moment of reflection.

Ready To Die’, Iggy’s first album with The Stooges since 2007’s ‘The Weirdness’, is a different beast, and much more like the balls-on-the-board gutter-rock that made his name. Promoting the new Iggy and the Stooges album, Iggy Pop has struck a combative note. Among the serried ranks of classic bands that have reformed over the last decade, Iggy and the Stooges, he recently announced, are "a real fucking group", not a collection of musicians gathered together under a lucrative musical flag of convenience – "this is not the Smashing Pumpkins where it's like: 'We've got the bald guy and whoever.

Iggy Pop knows that the new Stooges album, Ready to Die, is unlikely to compete with Justin TimberlakeandTaylor Swift at the handful of record stores that still exist. I didn’t do this expecting to make money out of it, he tells Rolling Stone. It’s a lot of work, but I felt it was something that had to be done. This is my teenage dream, having a band that makes records and plays gigs. Williamson’s work on Ready to Die marks his first collaboration with Iggy in over 30 years. Iggy and Williamson wrote the eight songs on Raw Power together, but the album tanked, heroin abuse consumed the band, and when they played their final show at Detroit’s Michigan Palace in 1974, they were literally dodging beer bottles all night. Looking back, it’s probably better that we didn’t have any success, Willamson says. If we made any money, we would have killed ourselves because we were taking so many drugs.

Punk rock legends Iggy and the Stooges are heading back to stores this spring with their latest studio album, 'Ready to Die,' and we're now getting our first taste of the disc, courtesy of the new track 'Burn. The driving rocker is filled with guitar goodness, with frontman Iggy Pop leading the way on the chorus, "Burn, burn, they're taking over baby, Burn, burn, they're taking over. The hyper-sexual rocker also delivers the salacious lyric, "The goddess of beauty is begging to do me, I got a lesson to learn" in the song.

When Iggy and the Stooges collapsed in the late 1970s, Iggy hitched a ride with David Bowie, while guitarist James Williamson went off to study calculus. Now, amazingly, they are gigging again. Will Hodgkinson meets both parties of a reckless reunion. Plus, Alexis Petridis on Raw Power, the band's landmark album. Then Iggy calls and says David Bowie wants him to come to London to make an album, and that he's not going without me. We get a contract for £10,000 – a huge amount of money back then – stay in Kensington Gardens Hotel, and hang out with people that drive Bentleys. We go from absolute poverty to the lap of luxury.
