Blondie have released a new single, the insanely catchy ‘Long Time’.
The hooky single is the latest taste from their forthcoming album Pollinator, released on May 5.
‘Long Time’ was written with Dev Hynes, and is basically a rewrite of their 1979 classic ‘Heart Of Glass’. The similarities were supposedly intentional; the song “channels a deliberate echo” according to the official press release, and we can’t imagine the resemblance escaped a band who have had to perform that song at every single show for close to forty years.
Pollinator is shaping up to be quite the collaborative album, with Joan Jett, Johnny Marr, Nick Valensi from The Strokes, Sia, and Charlie XCX among the guests featured.
