Toyah Willcox and Robert Fripp covered Iggy Pop’s “The Passenger” in the latest of their Sunday Lunch video series.
Video specials began during the UK’s first coronavirus lockdown last year and quickly went viral as the couple put their spin on songs from David Bowie, Metallica, Britney Spears, Soft Cell and more.
âWelcome to Toyah and Robert’s Sunday lunch and here we are rocking with T on the kitchen table,â Fripp presented in this week’s episode. “Pity!” Willcox performed from the top of the table in orange and tan headphones, while a split screen showed her husband watching from a chair in front of her.
âNormalcy has been restored and Toyah is back on the table! They added in the YouTube description of the video. “And this week Robert is really a passenger !!!”
The last two episodes of Toyah and Robert’s Sunday Lunch saw Fripp play from the top of the table. During these clips, the couple performed covers of “I’m Too Sexy” by Right Said Fred and “Peaches” by the Stranglers.
Meanwhile, Willcox released their 16th studio album, âPosh Pop,â last month. Talk to NME about it in a recent interview, she said: “When COVID shut it down last year, it allowed me to focus on writing and recording the next album,” she said. . âWe recorded in Simon’s outdoor studio with just him, my husband and me.
â’Posh Pop’ has been a magical experience created out of the need and the ability to connect with our fans in a sincere way. Also the terrifying distance between those who run the world and those in the field inspired my writing.
