With a wink at “Heart of Glass,” references to the Bowery and a heaving sonic drive, Blondie delivered this buzzy bit of dance-rock that looks backwards but sounds modern. Debbie Harry, who co-wrote the tune with Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes, still can work her disaffected sex appeal on that breathy lead-in to the chorus: “Take me then lose me / Then tell them I’m yours.” .

Harry co-wrote “Long Time” with Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes. The song appears on the New Wave icons’ recently issued 11th album release, Pollinator. the band released the song’s frenetic video, in which Harry drives a taxi cab chaotically through New York City.

The John Congleton-produced album also features other collaborations with Sia, Charli XCX, Laurie Anderson, Joan Jett, former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, the Strokes’ Nick Valensi and TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek (who co-wrote lead single “Fun”).

Official video for “Long Time” from the upcoming album “Pollinator” out 5/5/17
