Iggy Pop’s ‘The Passenger’ finally gets a music video 43
years later – watch, Shop Ticket Snatchers

The music video for Iggy Pop‘s ‘The
Passenger’ has been made and released more than four decades
after the song was shared.

‘The Passenger’ was the B-side to Pop’s song
‘Success’, the first single released from his second solo
studio album ‘Lust For Life’ (1977). Until now the song
didn’t have an accompanying music video.

In the visuals, black and white photos of a young Iggy fade into
view over vignettes of night-time motorway driving. Song lyrics
including “He sees the sight of hollow sky” appear atop other
archive images from the star’s late-1970s musical escapades.

Pop announced the video with a message on Instagram today (July
9): “So ‘The Passenger’ finally has an official video. Thank
you @simontayl0rfor your
talent and thank you #EstherFriedman and @paulmcalpinerr for
sharing images from the times of The Passenger.â€

In the description of the video on YouTube, Pop added another
thank you “for those beautifully captured shots that make this
video truly encapsulate the periodâ€.

Pop has released 16 other solo albums since ‘Lust For Life’.
His latest,
‘Free’
, was reviewed by NME’s Thomas Smith who noted it
sees the “rock’n’roll icon take control of his legacy with a
contemplative and liberating collection that unshackles him from
his pastâ€.

In other news,
a live recording of the last concert performed by Pop’s former
band The Stooges’ in its original lineup is released on August
7
.
