Blondie drop Blood Orange collaboration, 'Long Time'
Blondie’s back: The Debbie Harry-fronted band debuted a new single, “Long Time,” co-written by Dev Hynes (also known as Blood Orange) Wednesday.
The song, which has hints of 1979 hit “Heart of Glass,” will appear on Blondie’s upcoming 11th album, Pollinator. This is their first album since 2014’s Ghosts of Download and includes collaborations with multiple other artists like Sia, Charli XCX, TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, The Strokes’ Nick Valensi, The Smiths’ Johnny Marr, and Adam Johnston. Joan Jett also contributes vocals, along with John Roberts and the Gregory Brothers.
“Long Time” — above — follows previously released Pollinator cut “Fun.” The full album arrives May 5, and their Rage and Rapture Tour, co-headlined by Garbage, kicks off two months later on July 5. Buy tickets here.
