Blondie serves up a mix of old and new in a release celebrating the band's 40th anniversary. Due May 13th, Blondie 4(0) Ever features one disc of new songs titled Ghosts of Download, paired with a second -- Deluxe Redux: Greatest Hits -- with newly recorded versions of past classics and Andy Warhol's famed portrait of Debbie Harry as cover art.

Along with digital and CD copies, there's also a deluxe set adding a two-disc copy of Blondie's 1977 performance a the New York club CBGB's, and a vinyl LP pressing with that CBGB's show on DVD. Digital pre-orders will include additional new tunes.

Ghosts of Download is the 10th original album by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees and their first since 2011. Along with newly written material, it also features a slowed-down cover of Frankie Goes to Hollywood's '80s smash "Relax."
