Blondie set to release new album in 2011

'Panic Of Girls' will be the follow-up to 2003's 'The Curse Of Blondie'

Blondie have revealed that they will release a new album in 2011.

Initially due out just in Australia this November, ‘Panic Of Girls’, the follow-up to 2003’s ‘The Curse Of Blondie’, will be released in the UK and the US next year.

“We tried to make the recording process as organic as possible,” drummer Clem Burke told “[We] tried to stay away from programming as much as we could, because [‘The Curse Of Blondie’] had a lot of programming on it. So, in the spirit of Woodstock, we kept going in the studio and playing.”

The group have been previewing a few songs live recently, including ‘What I Heard’, ‘The End’ and ‘Mother’, with Burke admitting that the audience have been reacting well to the new tracks in their set.

“We’ve been getting a great reception with the new material,” he explained. “We’re doing about five or six of them in the show, which is kind of difficult for people, hearing new material for the first time at a show. But we’ve been doing really well with it.”
