THE RETURN OF DEBBIE HARRY AND BLONDIE
You can bag the brilliant brand new studio album a few weeks earlier than the traditional release in the form of a Fanpack coming out on June 1st which also includes a 132-page magazine. What’s more, the Fan Pack version of Panic Of Girls comes with two bonus tracks that will not be on the record store version of the album. The Fan Pack magazine is 100% Blondie-approved and contains major, all-new interviews with Debbie Harry, Chris Stein, Clem Burke and all the other members of Blondie, as they talk us through the making of the album and look back over a history that has seen them sell 40 million albums and break new ground in the worlds of pop and fashion. The magazine is packed with a wealth of exclusive, never-before-seen pictures of Blondie including rare treasures from Chris Stein s own archive. A must for all Blondie fans!
It’s available at all good stockists including:

BBC – Desert Island Discs
Blondie singer Debbie Harry talks to Kirsty Young and selects eight favourite recordings to take to the BBC’s mythical island.
Debbie Harry, quite rightly, does not like to be defined by her age but the fact that she spends so much time going out to live gigs is unusual for a woman in her 60s. The artists she selects here include some very contemporary female vocalists – Beth Ditto, for instance – who, she explains to Kirsty Young, remind her of her youthful, confident and confrontational self. Anyone who heard her interview with Matt Everitt over on 6 Music a few weeks ago will recall that Ms Harry does not like talking about her life as a defined narrative, but the glimpses into what she has been through as a rock star are more illuminating here. There’s a particularly good story about what happened on stage wearing a dress made of razors and all the lights went out.
