SIOUXSIE SIOUX will mark the 30th anniversary of the "summer of punk" with her first solo single.

Last night the singer gave Email a sneak preview of the track - Into A Swan - and we reckon she's set for the comeback of the year.

It's three decades since the Sex Pistols stuck a safety pin through the Queen's nose and caused chaos with their in famous boat trip on the Thames.

Siouxsie, a huge fan, struggled to get a deal for her group, The Banshees, back then. But she'll stick two fingers up to the record chiefs who snubbed her by releasing a solo album on indie label W14 Imprint in September. It was recorded in London and France.

She said: "What drives me is always to do the thrill you feel when working on a new project."

There are also plans for a UK tour - including Scottish gigs - to launch the new CD.
