The package is dubbed Blondie 4(0)-Ever and includes a CD of re-recorded greatest hits, the new 16-track album (featuring singles Sugar On The Side and A Rose By Any Other Name) and a DVD Live at CBGB 1977.

The deluxe package will include five photo prints from the archives of Chris Stein as well as a reproduction of a concert poster from 1979. There is a cut-down 2CD edition which does not include the DVD element, as well as a 3LP vinyl package.

At the time of writing a tip for those in the EU would be to opt for the 2CD+DVD French Amazon pre-order  since that is just over £13 compared to nearly £21 in the UK.

Blondie 4(0)-Ever will be issued on 19 May 2014.

    The ‘newly re-recorded’ aspect does not instill me with confidence I’m afraid. Good way to promote new album though.

  2. Paul Rymer says:

    This looks like a great package, if the re-recorded hits are like the live versions they’ll be fast and furious! Saw the band live a couple of years ago and was amazed at how they played so many songs back-to-back, Clem is a machine!

  3. Gary says:

    I can’t help thinking that once you start packaging your new album along with things from your past, that someone somewhere doesn’t have much faith in the new album to sell.

  4. Marc says:

    I am looking froward to the re-recorded versions and the DVD.
    But I don’t understand Amazon – why is the french store 11 €uros cheaper then the german store? Even with included shipping I save 7 Euros ?!

    [ahmmm… the name is, I’m afraid, stupid].

  6. omar says:

    Not too impressed with the best of. 11 tracks of re-recorded hits ? The originals weren’t good enough ?

  7. Orig80'saddict says:

    Also not wild about the re-recorded hits (but will give it a chance). Hate the cover. If they wanted to have a retro pic of Harry, there are a millon better choices. Looking forward to the new music and dvd.

  8. Thomas Williams says:

    Will the 16 track version of the main disc be released in the UK as well? I read somewhere this was only in France and that the rest of the world only got a 13 track version?

    Can anyone who knows clarify?

  9. Henry says:

    The cover could be a lot better, and putting the new album on CD 2 instead of CD 1 doesn’t show much faith in the new material – makes it seem like a bonus CD.

  11. holger says:

    Can anyone clarify the 13/16 tracks on “Ghosts of Download”? Does the Deluxe Edition 2CD+DVD version include all 16 tracks or only 13 tracks? The tracklisting on all amazon sites lists only 13 tracks while the blondie.net US shop lists 13 tracks plus 3 bonus tracks for the Deluxe Edition 2CD+DVD.
