Eurovision winners Måneskin have announced that they will be releasing a new version of their hit single “I Wanna Be Your Slave” with rock legend Iggy Pop.

Scheduled for release on August 6, Måneskin first teased the news via a video posted on their social media, showing a Zoom call with a classically shirtless Iggy Pop coming to an end.

The band had the following to say about the collaboration with Iggy Pop:

“It was such an honor that he loved our music and wanted to work with us. It was touching seeing him sing I Wanna Be Your Slave live in front of us, it was very powerful to see such a big artist being so open and friendly.

“We all grew up listening to his music and he inspired us to starting up a band, it’s still unbelievable for us that we had the chance to get to know him and make music together” while Pop commends the group saying that they give him a “big hot buzz”.

I Wanna Be Your Slave” is taken from the band’s 2021 album “Teatro D’ira: Vol I”, which additionally lists the Eurovision winning tune “Zitti E Buoni“. Currently at number 5 in the UK singles chart, the song was also recently certified Silver, which works out at 200,000 sales. In addition, it’s been certified platinum in Italy, Finland and Poland, six-times platinum in Russia, and was certified Gold in Austria, Greece, Norway, Sweden and Turkey.
