Info for Pollinator

Pollinator ist eine großartige neue Platte, die eine moderne Version des klassischen, vintage Sounds einer der einflussreichsten und legendärsten Bands der Welt abbildet.

Das berühmte New Yorker Studio The Magic Shop, insbesondere bekannt für die beiden letzten Alben von David Bowie und ein Album von Lou Reed, war die perfekte Umgebung für Blondies Kreativität. Pollinator ist das letzte Album, das vor der Schließung des The Magic Shop dort aufgenommen wurde und offenbart einen regelrechten Aufruhr aus Sound und musikalischer Farbe; seine elf Tracks führen die musikalische Unterhaltung fort, die Blondie vor über 40 Jahren begonnen haben.

Produzent John Congleton (St. Vincent, John Grant, War On Drugs, David Byrne) nahm die Band im Studio live auf, um die Essenz der Mitbegründer des Punkrock einzufangen – einem Genre, das sein Leben definiert hatte. Als es darum ging, dass Chris, Debbie und Drummer Clem Burke die Band wieder zusammenriefen, um das neue Album aufzunehmen, wurden handverlesene Musik-Pioniere kontaktiert, die in den Dekaden seit der Gründung von Blondie ihrerseits für Aufsehen gesorgt hatten. Bei den Aufnahmen gaben sich im Studio neben The Gregory Brothers („When I Gave Up On You“) auch Joan Jett und Laurie Anderson die Ehre (“Doom or Destiny”) sowie Johnny Marr von The Smiths und auch Chartkönigin Sia.

Blondie
is an American rock band founded by singer Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein. The band was a pioneer in the early American new wave and punk scenes of the mid-late 1970s. Its first two albums contained strong elements of these genres, and although successful in the United Kingdom and Australia, Blondie was regarded as an underground band in the United States until the release of Parallel Lines in 1978. Over the next three years, the band achieved several hit singles including "Call Me", "Rapture" and "Heart of Glass" and became noted for its eclectic mix of musical styles incorporating elements of disco, pop, reggae, and early rap music.

Blondie broke up after the release of its sixth studio album The Hunter in 1982. Debbie Harry continued to pursue a solo career with varied results after taking a few years off to care for partner Chris Stein, who was diagnosed with pemphigus, a rare autoimmune disease of the skin. The band re-formed in 1997, achieving renewed success and a number one single in the United Kingdom with "Maria" in 1999, exactly 20 years after their first UK No.1 single ("Heart of Glass".

The group toured and performed throughout the world during the following years, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. Blondie has sold 40 million records worldwide and is still active. The band's tenth studio album Ghosts of Download, was released in 2014 and their eleventh Pollinator will be released on May 5, 2017.
