Blondie set to release new album in 2011

[b]Blondie[/b] have revealed that they will release a new album in 2011.

Initially due out just in Australia this November, [b]'Panic Of Girls'[/b], the follow-up to 2003's [b]'The Curse Of Blondie'[/b], will be released in the UK and the US next year.

"We tried to make the recording process as organic as possible," drummer [b]Clem Burke[/b] told "[We] tried to stay away from programming as much as we could, because [[b]'The Curse Of Blondie'[/b]] had a lot of programming on it. So, in the spirit of [b]Woodstock[/b], we kept going in the studio and playing."

The group have been previewing a few songs live recently, including [b]'What I Heard'[/b], [b]'The End'[/b] and [b]'Mother'[/b], with [b]Burke[/b] admitting that the audience have been reacting well to the new tracks in their set.

"We've been getting a great reception with the new material," he explained. "We're doing about five or six of them in the show, which is kind of difficult for people, hearing new material for the first time at a show. But we've been doing really well with it."
