Blondie have announced their newest single ‘Doom or Destiny’, taken from their already legendary 11th studio album, ‘Pollinator‘ – and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
As the album opener, ‘Doom or Destiny’ launches ‘Pollinator’ in true Blondie style. Alongside the sultry rasp of Debbie Harry, the track features guest backing vocals by fellow leading woman in punk, Joan Jett (The Runaways, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts).
The track was written solely by Blondie co-founders Chris Stein and Debbie Harry and is frequently handpicked by critics as a favourite.
‘Pollinator’ (released May 5 on BMG) – Blondie’s first studio album since 2014’s ‘Ghosts of Download‘ – soared to Number 4 in the UK charts, making it the group’s first Top 5 entry in over 18 years.
Additionally, Blondie are set for a major UK tour in November which will see the New York legends play in Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and London.
Due to incredible demand – Manchester sold out within 24 hours and the O2 Brixton Academy followed quickly – they have recently added and a second at the prestigious London Venue, plus further shows in Nottingham, Brighton and Cardiff.
Since 1976, Blondie have released 11 studio albums, 4 live albums, 14 compilation albums, 3 remix albums and 38 singles, selling over an estimated 40 million albums worldwide.
