Blondie just released their 11th studio album Pollinator today that’s a new take on the original sound of the legendary band.
Pop writers and chart queens Sia and Charli XCX are fans that were invited to contribute as well as The Smiths’ Johnny Marr, an old friend and admirer who wrote My Monster and joins the band on guitar. Joan Jett and Laurie Anderson make studio appearances too on Doom or Destiny. Debbie Harry says of their co-writers,
“Their material is part of us and we are part of them. It’s a celebration of recycling!”
The Pollinator artwork comes courtesy of artist Shepard Fairey. Blondie are: Debbie Harry, Chris Stein, Clem Burke, Matt Katz-Bohen, Leigh Foxx and Tommy Kessler.
