Since their landslide win of this year’s European Song Contest, adoration for Italian rock band Måneskin has landed on the lips of countless fans from across the globe. Now, they have even received the seal of approval from rock legend Iggy Pop, who is set to appear on a new version of their hit single, I Wanna Be Your Slave.
Scheduled for release on August 6, Måneskin first teased the news via a cryptic video posted on their social media, showing a Zoom call with a classically shirtless Iggy Pop coming to an end.
Måneskin said of the collaboration: “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.
Last month, Måneskin shared the racy video behind the original I Wanna Be Your Slave single. Directed by Simone Bozzelli, it saw the quartet glamorously styled in Gucci while engaging in a voyeuristic loop of smutty yet empowering NSFW activities.
