Blondie - Yuletide ThrowdownUniversal
Blondie have released a new festive three-track EP featuring ‘Yuletide Throwdown’, a rare track that was co-written with hip-hop pioneer Fab 5 Freddy.
Blondie famously gave a shout-out to Fab 5 Freddy on their 1980 song ‘Rapture’, with Debbie Harry commencing its rap section with “Fab 5 Freddy told me everybody’s fly”. Freddy later appeared in the song’s accompanying video.
The festive track was released on a special flexi-disc that was given away by the UK music magazine Flexipop in 1981, but has only recently been rediscovered by Blondie.
