Written for Kurrent Music
Published February 8th 2017
When I heard that Blondie were about to release a new album, later this year, I had expected it would be a rock album. Last I heard from them, was rock music. However, I’m pleasantly surprised to hear they have chosen a completely different path.
Blondie have always mixed rock with electro and even some reggae, but this time they thought it was time to get us into our dancing shoes and get our disco down. Following the trend of referring to the 70s, heir new single, “Fun”, makes you think you have caught a Saturday Night Fever.
The song reminds me of the kind of material the Scissor Sisters would write, but is the result of Blondie’s collaboration with Dave Sitek.
