Blondie

For the past four decades, Blondie has become and still remains a national treasure. From an irreverent Lower East Side punk outfit to bona fide international ambassadors of New York cool, Blondie will forever be synonymous with that punk spirit that lives somewhere in all of us. The band’s influence has both shaped and continues to inform the worlds of music, fashion and art.

Comprised of singer-songwriter Debbie Harry, guitarist and co-writer Chris Stein, powerhouse drummer Clem Burke, and long-time band members bassist Leigh Foxx, guitarist Tommy Kessler and keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen, Blondie’s chart-topping success, fearless spirit and rare longevity led to an induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2006, a NME Godlike Genius Award in 2014, a Q Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music in 2016, the 2017 Silver Clef Outstanding Achievement Award and more than 45 million albums sold worldwide to date.

Debbie Harry’s persona and the band’s boundary-pushing pop have shaped the look and sound of many chart-topping female artists who followed in the last three decades.

Blondie’s newest album, Pollinator, delves even deeper into this concept: inspiration from Blondie’s action-packed, cross-pollinating past shaping the sound of our collective future. The band released their 11th studio album entitled Pollinator during May 2017. Selected as one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s 20 Best Pop Albums of 2017, Pollinator is a remarkable album that stands alongside any in their celebrated and trailblazing career. GRAMMY® Award-winning producer John Congleton (The Decemberists, St. Vincent, Sigur Ros) brought out the late ‘70s Parallel Lines attitude of Blondie again on Pollinator, with arrangements that are fast and fun, lyrics that are romantic and teasing, and synth-stoked hooks that evoke the new wave era.
