Blondie's new album is appropriately titled THE CURSE OF BLONDIE, because the group feared it would never get released.

The album was completed three years ago (01), but production and record company wrangles led to the project being shelved.

Singer Debbie Harry explains, "The tapes went to England for a while with the producer and he sort of held them for ransom. It took us a while to get them back.

"Then our record company went under, so we had to get a new deal."
