Blondie Release New Track with Dev Hynes

SEEN has always admired Debbie Harry and Blondie and is delighted that they’re still releasing new music, this time in collaboration with Dev Hynes, Blood Orange’s alter-ego. The new track ‘Long Time’ has anthemic hints of ‘Heart of Glass’ and is taken from their new album (Blondie’s eleventh in the studio), ‘Pollinator’, to be released on May 5th. The album will also feature Sia, Joan Jett, CharliXCX, Nick Valensi, Johnny Marr and many others.

In Harper’s Bazaar, she recently exulted at the prominence of women on the music scene now: ‘There are so many great female artists. Now it’s become standard. It’s no longer a boys’ club. Times do change.’
