Blondie return with their eleventh studio album Pollinator in March. In an interview with Mojo, the band revealed the follow up to 2014's Ghosts Of Download was recorded at NYC's The Magic Stop (where David Bowie recorded his final two albums), and features a song written by Johnny Marr. Chris Stein told Mojo that he wasn't a huge fan of The Smiths, but Marr's contribution to the new album got him "really pumped up and excited." The Marr-penned song is titled "My Monster" and has been described by Mojo as "a zippy and lyrically surreal new wave spanker."
Pollinator also features several other guests including David Sitek of TV on the Radio and Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange). The album is scheduled to be released on March 17th. The album's cover art and pre-order info has not yet been announced.
