Blondie and Debbie Harry: New Single, Video, Album after 8 Years


Blondie is back! Their first new single and video, “Mother,” is below in the video player. Their new album, “Panic of Girls,” hits stores in the UK on June 1st and is available through It seems like the US release is set for July, although this is unclear. There are just three original members of Blondie–Debbie Harry, Chris Stein, and Clem Burke. But their sound remains fresh as ever. And “Mother” sounds like a winner. Can’t wait to hear the album, whenever it comes out and on whatever label. Viva Blondie!
