Blondie will chart the progression of its 1979 chart-topper "Heart Of Glass" with the October 26th release of BLONDIE: Heart Of Glass. Rolling Stone reported the EP, which will be available as a deluxe 12-inch EP and on all digital formats, includes "an instrumental rendition of the song, an extended version, a mix by DJ Shep Pettibone, a 1975 recording when it was still called 'The Disco Song' and a 1978 attempt where they labeled it 'Once I Had A Love.'"

The band also announced the fall 2019 box set release of BLONDIE: The Complete Studio Recordings 1975-1982, which collects the band's earliest demos up through Blondie's final album before they split.

Blondie's co-founder and keyboardist Jimmy Destri credits Debbie Harry's movie star looks for keeping the band in step with cutting edge fashion -- a fact that was especially underlined on the band's TV appearances: "A major part of that was Debbie. When you've got somebody that looks like that in your band, you're sort of lifted up by the power of your lead person. y'know? You've gotta strive to look better and better. So we used to like really carefully try and put the persona on. Actually Clem said this a while back, when we had the reunion, he said, 'Well, look at us. . .' -- there was a picture of us without Debbie, like waiting for her, for her makeup, and we look like Oasis (laughs). Y'know?"
