Iggy Pop has announced that he is bucking tradition and releasing a jazz album based on the novel 'La Possibilité D'une Ile' ('The Possibility Of An Island') by French author Michel Houellebecq. The forthcoming effort will be called 'Preliminaires'.

Pop explained in a video posted on the Web site IggyPop.org that he decided to record the album because he was "sick" of listening to guitar bands.

"It's a quiter album with some jazz overtones," Pop said. "That's because at one point I just got sick of listening to idiot thugs with guitars, banging out crappy music. And I was starting to listen to a lot of New Orleans-era Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton type of jazz."

The Stooges singer also noted that he was originally asked to write songs for a documentary about Houellebecq's crusade to have the novel make it to the silver screen.

Interestingly enough, Pop sings one song on the album, the track "Les Feuilles Mortes" ("Autumn Leaves"), in French.

"I've made it really especially for France and people who speak French," Pop said.

In the video, Pop is seated by a pool while the song "King Of The Dogs" plays. The singer explains that the tune focuses on "just how cool it is to be a dog and how much it beats human life."
