Watch Joan Jett in Blondie’s new video for “Doom or Destiny”

Debbie Harry and Joan Jett co-host an apocalyptic news broadcast in Blondie’s “Doom or Destiny” video.


Take a look:

The song is the opener from Blondie’s 11th LP, Pollinator. The band worked with an array of famous fans including Sia, the Strokes’ Nick Valensi, Charli XCX and Blood Orange on the album, which came out in May.

The band

Blondie was founded by singer Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein. The band was a pioneer in the early American new wave and punk scenes of the mid-late 1970s. Its first two albums contained strong elements of these genres, and although successful in the United Kingdom and Australia, Blondie was regarded as an underground band in the United States until the release of Parallel Lines in 1978.

Over the next three years, the band achieved several hit singles including “Heart of Glass”, “Call Me”, “Rapture” and “The Tide Is High” and became noted for its eclectic mix of musical styles incorporating elements of disco, pop, reggae, and early rap music.

Blondie disbanded after the release of its sixth studio album The Hunter in 1982. Debbie Harry continued to pursue a solo career with varied results after taking a few years off to care for partner Chris Stein, who was diagnosed with pemphigus, a rare autoimmune disease of the skin.

The band re-formed in 1997, achieving renewed success and a number one single in the United Kingdom with “Maria” in 1999, exactly 20 years after their first UK No.1 single (“Heart of Glass”).
