Blondie have announced the release of their ninth studio album, titled Panic of Girls, out in September 2011 via the band’s own imprint. On Panic Of Girls, the New York City-based sextet create a sound that is more recognizable than ever, achieving a timeless pop sheen. The album was predominantly recorded in Woodstock, New York and was produced by Jeff Saltzman (the Killers, Fischerspooner) and Kato Khandwala (Paramore, Papa Roach).
The new album finds singer Debbie Harry, guitarist Chris Stein, and drummer Clem Burke returning with newer band mates in tow- Leigh Fox, who’s been with the group since it reunited in ’97; new guitarist Tommy Kessler; and keyboardist Katz-Bohen. The first single, “Mother,” is a nod to the fabled West 14th Street nightclub of the same name which attracted the most outrageous downtown luminaries and self-made superstars in the 90’s. Watch the new video for “Mother” below.
