Default Sigh...it's nice to see other artists releasing new albums...

So there's a new Blondie CD coming out in May. I really like the new single and video. I have to admit, I'm pretty impressed with Blondie's output of new material over the last decade or so. Are they selling millions and millions of albums? No. Are they making tons of money from album sales? Um, no. But are they keeping their die hard fans happy with some new material output every few years or so? Um, YES! This is what has made me so disappointed in Stevie, and her arguments that it takes too long, or won't sell anyway. DO IT FOR YOUR FANS! We LOVE all the new stuff you release, even if it's re-worked old demos. I would do anything to see her put out a few more albums (and even contributions for another Mac album) over the next few years, with the time she has left.

I think it's very possible she might release another collection of songs from the vault recorded quickly, like 24 Karat Gold. But as for new music, I don't think so.

I love Blondie for EXACTLY these reasons! And yeah, some of the music has been great!!

Stevie released two albums since 2012. That's an improvement over her lack of material the previous decade.
And Blondie? I love them. But I haven't liked ANYTHING Blondie has released since "No Exit." That was the last album I liked. I would prefer Blondie stopped putting out new material. I don't buy it, and judging from her live performances, Debbie Harry's voice is shot. Blondie needs to retire. And that's coming from a fan.

If having a shot voice is a reason to retire then Stevie should have quite some time ago

Nah. Stevie's range is very limited now, but it's still very strong. That's just my opinion.

I am sorry but Stevie's voice is far from SHOT. I haven't heard Debbie Harry in quite a while but Stevie's voice was strong and consistent when I saw her on this last tour. She may not hit high notes anymore but she is going strong.

I hate to agree with this but I do. Christine's voice used to be so pure and sugary...now she struggles to carry a tune. The FM tour made it so obvious. They sounded great in their harmonies together but she didn't sound so good by herself. I love Christine but I cant deny this. Makes me a bit sad...

Christine was gone for 15 years, and didn't work her voice. Stevie may not have the range she once had, but she still has an amazing voice.

I'm not a big fan of Blondie, but I thought I'd give the song a listen. It's a fun song, and I don't think it's an embarrassment to release it. I'd imagine that many fans would be pleased with it.

However, the lead vocal sounds like a product of technology rather than a straight performance. It sounds to me as if it has been pitch-corrected/shifted and processed up the wazoo.

I love Blondie. But her live performances now are very flat and tired

How does Timothy B Schmit do it while his contemporaries are all becoming gruff and scratchy?
