Today, Blondie released their first album in three years. The LP, Blondie 4(0) Ever, is a two-disc set, one being a handful of brand new songs titled Ghosts of Download and the second being a collection of remixes of her previous hits titled Greatest Hits: Deluxe Redux. You can listen to the first disc of the album in its entirety above via Spotify.
Ghosts of Download is an eclectic mix of songs solidifying Blondie's ability to venture into various musical genres. Several of the songs are reggae-inspired including "I Screwed Up," which features the Panamanian duo Los Rakas and "A Rose By Any Name" featuring Beth Ditto. The hip-hop influenced "Relax" is a more somber tune featuring Keilah Baez, Felicia Dennis and Keisha Williams. The remaining tracks on the album are all energetic and reminiscent of Blondie's earlier albums, especially dance tunes "Make A Way" and "Mile High."
The second disc of Blondie 4(0) Ever, Greatest Hits: Delux Redux, is a collection of re-recorded versions of the band's biggest hits including "Atomic," "Call Me," and "The Tide Is High." The new versions of the popular songs sound much more modern, but still showcase lead singer Debbie
Harry's iconic singing voice.
Blondie 4(0) Ever can be pre-ordered on iTunes and the album will be released on May 13th courtesy of Universal Music Group.
