Music: Blondie Unveil Ghosts of Download Relase, Tracklist

After delaying the release of new studio album Ghosts of Download several times, Blondie are set to finally release the highly-anticipated set as part of Blondie 4(0)-Ever: Greatest Hits Deluxe Redux on May 13.

The first single from Ghosts of Download, A Rose By Any Name (Ft. Beth Ditto) was released back in June and gave us a taste of what we can expect from the Debbie Harry-fronted band’s latest album. It promised flavours of the electronic dance, Latin-beats, and alternative pop-rock that we has gradually become the band’s signature sound. The group also released US only single Sugar on the Side back in December. These tracks all feature on the sixteen item tracklist seen below:

Greatest Hits: Deluxe Redux (Disc 1)

Heart Of Glass
The Tide Is High
Sunday Girl
Hanging On The Telephone
One Way Or Another
Call Me
Rip Her To Shreds

Ghosts of Download (Disc 2)
Sugar On The Side
A Rose By Any Name

I Want To Drag You Around
I Screwed Up
Take Me In The Night
Make A Way
Mile High
Take It Back
Put Some Color On You
Can’t Stop Wanting

A third live disc (DVD) is also available in the deluxe set.
Whilst we would probably rather have a standalone album instead of rerecorded greatest hits – we are just glad that we will finally get a chance to hear Ghosts of Download in full – something that was gradually beginning to feel unlikely thanks to the album’s continual delays.
Ghosts of Download is released as part of Blondie 4(0)-Ever: Greatest Hits Deluxe Redux on May 13. You can pre-order here.
