Blondie Scrap Split Plans With New Album

Blondie Scrap Split Plans With New Album

Rockers BLONDIE are to release their first album since singer DEBORAH HARRY announced the band's split in 2006.

The group's farewell tour was extended and the split never happened - and now the group appear to have ditched the idea altogether following news they'll release an album of new material, called Panic of Girls, in 2011.

It will be the group's first set of new material since The Curse of Blondie in 2003.

Drummer Clem Burke tells Billboard.com he expects the album to break in Australia in time for Blondie's winter dates Down Under with The Pretenders.

He reveals the group recorded tracks for the new album last year (09) in upstate New York.

Burke adds, "Everyone in the band contributed songs."

He also reveals Blondie will look a little different when the band tours later this year (10): "We've switched out a few people in the band, so the creative dynamic has changed a little bit."
