Blondie to release new album

By | Published on Thursday 19 August 2010

Blondie will release their first album since 2003 in the near future. Entitled ‘Panic Of Girls’, it will hit Australia to coincide with the band’s tour dates in the country in November and December, while the rest of the world should get their hands on it in early 2011. Although this does all depend on the band sorting out label and distribution deals.

The band’s Clem Burke told Billboard that the album was recorded in Woodstock, explaining: “We were living in the country out there, kind of the antithesis of the urbanite kind of atmosphere that exists around Blondie. We tried to make the recording process as organic as possible and tried to stay away from programming as much as we could, because [2003’s ‘The Curse of Blondie’] had a lot of programming on it. So in the spirit of Woodstock, we kept going in the studio and playing”.
