The new wave icons have unveiled the first single, ‘Fun’, written with TVOTR’s Dave Sitek.

Blondie have announced their 11th album, Pollinator, with the release of new single ‘Fun’, co-written with TV On the Radio’s Dave Sitek.

Pollinator features songs by Blondie members and others written by Sia (‘Best Day Ever’), Charli XCX (‘Gravity’), Dev Hynes (‘Long Time’) and Johnny Marr, who wrote ‘My Monster’ and joined the band on guitar.

The Strokes Nick Valensi also contributes to the album, which was produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, John Grant, War On Drugs, David Byrne). Joan Jett and Laurie Anderson make studio appearances on ‘Doom or Destiny’.

“Their material is part of us and we are part of them,” said Debbie Harry of their co-writers, all of whom were influenced by Blondie. “It’s a celebration of recycling!”

Pollinator was the last album recorded at New York studio, The Magic Shop, where David Bowie recorded his last two albums.

With artwork by Shepard Fairey, Pollinatar will be available on CD, digital and heavyweight vinyl, and as a limited edition 7” box set.

It’s out on May 5 and is available to preorder now. ‘Fun’ is available to stream and download now with 1000 7” singles available to order from February 1.
