Blondie: Fun (single) review

Like Blondie of the late ’70s and early ’80s? If so then you’re going to love their new single, Fun.

This week we were given a taste of the new album Pollinator which is due out in May.

Unlike some of their more recent releases, this track sees Debbie Harry, Chris Stein and the rest of the gang, along with producer John Congleton, go back to where it all began.

In Fun they have rid themselves of their recent electric-style (which in all honesty I was not a fan of) and have gone old school.

And it sounds great!

In fact Fun would almost seamlessly slot into Parallel Lines and not sound out of place.

Of course we can’t say if Pollinator will continue in the same vein as Fun, for that we will have to wait until May 5.

But if this single is anything to go by, then this could just be one of the surprise packages of 2017.
