Siouxsie Sioux has teamed up with Iggy Pop for a new rendition of “The Passenger.”

The song was originally co-written and recorded by Iggy Pop for his iconic album Lust For Life, which dropped in 1977.

“The Passenger” was then re-recorded a decade later, by Siouxsie And The Banshees, for their 1987 covers album Through The Looking Glass.

Now, nearly 35 years later, Sioux and Pop teamed up to remake the song for the third time for a new advert to promote Magnum ice cream.

In the ad, an actress is seen eating an ice cream bar while riding on a train and, in the background, the new rendition of the song can be heard.

In a press statement, Pop praised Siouxsie, saying she “can sing like a bird,” and adding, “I’ve always thought she was a great lady. Her version of the song was already special, but what happened here, singing together, is really unique. Like ‘Volare,’ the orchestral treatment and marriage of voices flies free, in a spirit of joy.”

Siouxsie added, “I love this song, and I’ve always loved Iggy’s voice. I adore how instinctive and spontaneous it all feels and to hear my voice with Iggy’s is such a dream.”
