The pop icons were speaking to NME as part of the ‘Soundtrack Of My Life’ series, when we asked frontwoman Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein which song by another artist they wished they’d written.
“Something from Muse I guess,” Harry told NME. “They have a marvellous sound that’s so distinctive, and beautiful songs.”
Meanwhile, Stein replied: “I was just in my room playing ‘Going To A Town’ by Rufus Wainwright about five times in a row. It’s an amazing and moving piece of music.”
While Muse are currently hard at work on new material while gearing up for a huge US tour with PVRIS and 30 Seconds To Mars, and to headline Reading & Leeds Festival, Blondie will be supporting Phil Collins at Hyde Park for British Summer Time, and playing a huge headline gig at The Roundhouse.
