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.

Very much the grande dame, Debbie Harry is as current and as inspired by new music as musicians many years her junior. 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.’

The White Asparagus: SEEN Reviews

How fortunate are the residents of Islington? Just a step away from the bustle of the Caledonian Road is the leafy idyll of Hemingford Road and the N1 Cuckoo Gastro-hub. Hard to believe that this little slice of the country resides at the heart of the big bad city. This feeling was heightened by the closed-off road and the children happily playing ball in the street.
