Just to prove there’s some hope out there after all, New Wave bombshells Blondie, fronted by Deborah Harry, scuttle back from retirement to recall some of the disco sheen that gave us classics like Heart Of Glass, Rapture and Call Me. Rather than just doing it again on their own, for their 11th album they asked a team of collaborators to help out including Sia, Charli XCX, The Smith’s Johnny Marr and rock’n’roller Joan Jett. “Their material is part of us and we are part of them,” declares Debbie of their co-writers, all of whom were influenced by Blondie in the first place. “It’s a celebration of recycling!” Blondie are teaming up with Cyndi Lauper for an Australian tour in April. They’ll play arena shows in Melbourne and Sydney, as well as A Day On The Green winery shows. Let’s indeed raise a glass to their continued golden blondness.

About DNA Magazine

Welcome to our Next Big Thing issue. Every day we’re bombarded with news of the “the latest”, “the newest”, “the most amazing next…” So we asked our contributors and correspondents to look to their speciality fields and focus on the next big things we’re really going to appreciate. For example, 3D porn is already here but fully interactive experiences are just around the corner. On stage, we’re looking forward to Bette Midler in Hello Dolly! and Pamela Rabe in The Testament Of Mary. It’s going to be a big year for gay content on film and television. Along with Moonlight, Call Me By Your Name and the Australian feature The Dream Children are going to make it an extraordinary year for gay film. On the health front, there are extraordinary developments in medical technology that are going to profoundly change lives, and the food we eat is no small part of it. Then, of course, there’s the world of fashion where change is fundamental (and fun). And let’s not forget the men and the models who are going to be heating up our pages, our news feeds and blowing up our Instagram accounts! We hope you like what we’ve put together. Enjoy the Next Big Things!
