Debbie Harry was more than a voice in New York new-wave band Blondie. She was one of the most remarkable front persons of all time, as charismatic onstage as Jagger or Elvis, and as iconic too.

Later this summer, Blondie release a deep dive into their early years’ archive, Blondie: Against the Odds 1974-1982. A box set of 124 songs (36 previously unreleased), it features demos, alternate versions, and out-takes.
