OMD - History of Modern

OMD has returned with the single "If You Want It" which is pretty decent. The video for it looks a little like a Pet Shop Boys video (as someone on YouTube mentioned).

The ablum titled "History of Modern" will be released in the U.S. on September 28 in 5.. count 5 formats! When a CD release these days just won't do.

The sound is very familiar and is clearly recognizable as an OMD song. One might question when in the 80s this song was released.

I'm not a huge fan of OMD. I don't have all their albums but do love most of their singles as well as this new one.

Blondie - Panic of Girls

So this is the artwork for the new Blondie album. Looks pretty cool.

The album is supposed to have about 16 tracks. That's a lot of Blondie. One of them will be a cover of Michael Jackson's Don't Stop Till You Get Enough. Want to know what that would sound like? Here's a video of them recording it in the Studio.

The album will also feature the song What I heard. Here's a preview from IOW Festival this year.

I like the song a lot and am looking forward for the new album. They are still touring and seems like they've been doing it since their last album The Curse of Blondie.
