Rock n’ roll fans, listen up! Today, Blondie (and Joan Jett!) released their new music video for “Doom or Destiny” on i-D. The song, featuring Jett's background vocals, is the opening track and fourth single off of their eleventh studio album, Pollinator.
“We wanted to comment on the bizarre state of media and news in the current political ‘idiocracy’ we are watching play out in real time,” Debbie Harry, Blondie’s frontwoman, said in a press release. She described the video to i-D as “the most openly political video Blondie has ever done.”
When the band goes political, it seems, they go big. Images of Jett and Harry flash next to a Donald Trump sock puppet and dancing Nasty Women in skintight suits. The video also touches on global warning, consumerism, and the declining bee population.
Pollinator which was released earlier this year, was largely a collaborative effort, featuring songs co-written by artists including Johnny Marr, Sia, and Dev Hynes.
